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.

Infant seats in 2006 Toyota access cab. We went to have the car seat installed by certified installers at the local fire department. Three firemen could not get the seat installed tightly and safely enough using the latch or the seatbelt. They referred us to the local dealership, steven Toyota in harrisonburg, Virginia. Four men attempted to install the seat at the dealership an they were unsuccessful. I spoke with the service manager and he made some phone calls on our behalf. After several days, I heard back from him and was told they didn't have a solution except to "put a cushion under it? to help tighten it. This was Toyota?S response? a completely non-specific, blanket statement that if taken seriously and the cushion failed during a crash, could have devastating results. Next, I spoke to someone in sales who made a phone call to "dan" who is apparently works for Toyota?S safety department. Six days later, we were told that Toyota had only heard of one other case that this was an issue and it was resolved. We were told that there was ?no resolution" and to try other seats. The dealership did make a trip to the local target store to look at seats and make suggestions but none of them worked. We made several more attempts with the local fire department and we could not find a seat that would tighten safely, either with latch or the seatbelt. Steven Toyota also suggested that we install the seat in the front but it is not recommended and effective July 1, a law in the state of Virginia. The following seats were attempted: Baby trend flex loc infant seat, cosco scenera convertible seat, cosco alpha omega elite convertible/booster seat. Another issue that we noticed is that if a seat could be installed, the seat must lean at a 45 degree angle for infants to ride. However, the angle leaves no room for anyone to sit comfortably in the front. The passenger seat had to be moved forward too much. I am 5 foot 8 inches tall and my knees were against the dashboard.
