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 head restraints push my head uncomfortably and dangerously forward. This makes driving a literal pain in the neck. It also limits my ability to see straight in front of me out the windshield (because my head is forced forward and down) and it severely limits my ability to turn my head to see behind my vehicle or to the sides of the car. NHTSA has made a horrible, horrible "safety" law and Toyota and other manufactures have implemented it in the worst way possible. Not all drivers are bald, 6-foot-tall males. The manufactures and the NHTSA need to consider shorter drivers and drivers with hair (hair styled in buns, ponytails, braids, french twists, etc. Can effect the overall diameter of the head) before insisting that the head restraints lean ridiculously and dangerously forward.
