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 driver seat is stuck and wont move forward or backward. Something is broken in the mechanism of the seat tracks and levers. I can not reach the pedals. Passengers in the rear cannot safely exit the vehicle quickly. The release mechanism on the passenger seat near the head rest also stopped working. The seat folds down but the seat does not slide forward.
