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 person sit behind the driver, push the automatic van door close button to close the door then reached over for the seat belt. The person accidentally reach the hand between the sliding door and door frame right next to the seat belt anchor close to the door. The door closed on the open finger and tried to close even tighter. The door mechanism did not reverse and open the door back up, but continues to try to close the door completely. After some hard pull on the door handle, the door finally reopened. The person finger was bruised and the wedding rings shape has been damaged. The ring is no longer round nor straight, it has been torqued by the force of the door mechanism.
