Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2005 Toyota Corolla. While driving at an unknown speed, the vehicle was involved in a head on collision and the seat belts failed to retract on impact. As a result, the contact lunged forward, bumped her head against the door frame, and lost consciousness. The contact sustained a concussion and the other two passengers sustained minor bruising. All three occupants required medical assistance and a police report was filed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician was unable to determine the cause of the failure. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and sent an engineer to inspect the vehicle. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 125,000. Updated 05/11/16

First the seatbelt buckle broke off on the back drivers side. Now the back seatbelt buckle has broken off on the back passenger side. Looks like rust has a factor in the issue.
