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.

Consumer was driving 2001 Toyota Sienna van when it stopped at a rest stop, his 13 year old son was unable to get out of seat belt. The seat belt would not release, the seat belt kept getting tighter and tighter until it started to restrict the son's breathing. In order to get the seat belt loose consumer had to cut the belt. The part of the seat belt that would not release was the retractor. The boy was wrapped in the seat belt, but the latch was undone. He was wrapped in such a way that he could not get loose due to the retractor pulling on the belt. Consumer says that the retractor would continue to wind up when he was working on getting his son loose, but he could not get the retractor to release to allow him to unwrap his son, who sustained bruises around waist.
