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.

While driving seat belts in the back will lock up when driving. Consumer has to unlock the belt and then relock it. Contacted dealer.

The center rear seat beltappears very unsafe. When locked in place, my children can easily loosen the belt with just the touch of their fingers. The belt does not come out of the lock, but it moves the tightness and the kids are sitting without any restraint. They are able to get up and move around! I took it to the local dealer (maroone Toyota 4050 weston road-invoice #tocs317153) on 7/9/01. I was told that that is just how it is designed and there is nothing wrong. When I argued how unsafe it was, I was told maybe I should not put young children in that seat. How can this be"?" all of my seats need to be utilized with my large family and my kids friends. Please tell me if you have gotten any other complaints on this. Thanks.
