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 buckles in the back seat of the car were installed in opposite places. The back left seatbelt will only buckle in the center seatbelt buckle. The center seatbelt will only buckle in the back left buckle. They are not twisted. If I have three passengers in the back, they have to crisscross the belts to buckle. The buckle installed on the left side has the word "center" on it.

Total loss of vehicle..police report is incomplete of details, due to officer "not believing me" and "purposely leaving report incomplete because of this being the second time out here on this call", when I tried to explain what happen while driving this Toyota Corolla, however the tow truck driver is a witness and agreed to testify..I have called Toyota several times and have got nothing.. property damage was done on third party property as well.

I got in the car to run an errand. The seatbelt wouldn't buckle to hold me in safely. I press it in and it just won't stay in place.
