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 air bag light remained illuminating while driving. The dealer informed the consumer the vehicle was not covered under a recall. The seat belt light would come on and the seat belts tensioners were found inoperative. The air bag light would stay on due to sensor failure.

Front seatbelt warning light comes on when buckled, goes off when unbuckled. Not sure if seatbelt will function properly in a crash. Dealer charged $92 to diagnose and quoted $375 to replace whole seatbelt assembly. I've read online about other people having the same problem with this light so I felt I should report it.
