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.

I am writing to report a defect in the britax decathlon car seat lower latch system. The belt on my system is twisted and will not perform properly in a crash. I have notified britax and they sent me a replacement belt but without any instructions and have not issued a recall. I am concerned about all the other car seats on the road and the children who are at risk of serious injury. A representative from the pa traffic injury prevention project (tipp) at the pa chapter of the american academy of pediatrics inspected the car seat on Tuesday October 26, 2010 and found that "the lower anchor attachment is backwards on one side and cannot be used correctly to install child seat using lower anchors." Her name is [xxx] and she can be reached at [xxx]. she said that it was a manufacturing defect and the seats should be recalled. The identifiers for the car seat are: Date of mfg: 04-05-2007 make decathlon model E9L 4769 serial number E9L4769017324 batch number J00088948 purchased from in May 2007 my contact at britax is [xxx] consumer service managerbritax [xxx] 13501 South ridge drive charlotte nc 28273 (related vehicle information: Model year=2006, make=Toyota, model=Highlander).
