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.

Super latch strap of sunshine kids radian xtsl is loosening over time and must constantly be double checked or reinstalled securely. I am a cpst and do not trust this seat to remain securely and correctly installed. The normal latch strap made by skjp (sunshine kids juvenille products) has a push-button release mechanism to allow the strap to be loosened. The superlatch strap has a metal tab that must only be lifted- and can be bumped by children's feet or will come loose on it's own over time. (related vehicle information: Model year=2005, make=Toyota, model=Sequoia).

Screw holding toggle mechanism for latch straps in sunshine kids monterey booster pulled away from base, causing toggle mechanism to recede into the booster body- making it virtually impossible to remove seat from vehicle. (neither "sunshine kids" nor "monterey" is listed on the "restraint type" box in the next page). I am a cpst as well as a firefighter and paramedic. This particular seat restrains the child with the vehicle's lap and shoulder belt, as it is a belt-positioning booster. However, this seat also has a latch system to secure the seat to the vehicle so that the seat itself does not become a projectile if not buckled into the vehicle when not in use. I have marked answers to following questions to reflect that the seat was installed with latch, but do understand how this seat is designed to be used (securing child with lap and shoulder belt), and have always used it 100% correctly. The child in question is 9 years old and 58 pounds. (related vehicle information: Model year=2005, make=Toyota, model=Sequoia).
