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.

Two issues: The driver's seat was unable to latch down. At the dealer, they stated that a pin had broken. They replaced the entire seat base. At our request, they provided us with the broken seat base. Upon my inspection, I noticed that a C clip had come off of a pin. As a result, the seat locking mechanism slid off the pin. Therefore, the seat would not lock into place. I inspected the passenger seat. A clip had fallen off of this seat and was lying on the carpet in the rear passenger seat section. When I showed this broken part to the dealer, he indicated that this part was not available and they did not recommend that I take any additional action as this time. The passenger seat still latches down. The clip that fell off is different than the C clip that fell off on the driver's side.
