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.

Sunshine kids radian xtsl carseat with superlatch system, purchased on May 11, 2011, becomes loose after several days of normal usage even though properly installed to start. The seat was manufacturer's in china November 2010, model US19500, serial # 111001985 04329. The seat is installed in a 2008 Toyota Prius and we are unable to get a secure installation using the seatbelt. When installed using the superlatch system, the seat can be moved several inches in any direction after my child has climbed in and out of the seat over the course of a few days. The company has not yet responded to my complaints. (related vehicle information: Model year=2008, make=Toyota, model=Prius).

I have reported to Toyota my concern about the 2008 model year Prius, the middle back passenger seat. The seat has been raised up about 2 inches (padding) but is narrow, causing it to not be stable/compatible with at least 3 different child restraint/booster seats that we have tried. This was not the case with the 2005 model year Prius. I have reported this to manufacturer, complaint#ref#200712061340.
