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 driver side rear seatbelt latch is switched with the center passenger belt, and the only receiver that will latch the belts is the one in the position of the center passenger. The other receivers simply do not latch. Although the mileage on the vehicle we have never had more than 1 person in the rear seat and they always sat behind the driver. I have not contacted the dealer, but will very soon.

Seat belt will lock before I have it buckled. It will not unlock. It happens at least once a day. I have brought it to the dealership twice; once when it was locked. The service man acknowledges there is a problem with the seatbelts as other mechanics have reported it as well but he is not going to do anything to fix it.
