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 contact owns a 2003 Volkswagen Eurovan. The contact noticed that the rear, middle seat belt buckle had broken into several pieces. In addition, the rear drivers seat belt would not connect to the base buckle housing. The manufacturer was contacted but would provide no assistance. The current and failure mileages were 150000.

The passenger seat belt locks up and does not extend once locked up. One has to undo and reel it back in and try again to pull it out. If it makes a whirring sound as it is pulled out, it will lock up again. This has happened to two of our VW Eurovans - a 1999 and a 2003 - so I am assuming it might be a common problem.
