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.

I manually lowered the rear seat back to allow increased cargo area. After removing the cargo, I could not raise the rear seat back to it's upright position. The center seat belt had locked it self in a way holding the seat back down not allowing the seat back to be raised to an upright position. A recall was issued 3-28-2005 regarding this dangerous seat belt malfunction problem effecting 50483 vehicles but fell short in failing to include the center rear seat belt in the recall. Neither the manufacturer nor the dealer are legally obliged to fix this situation at their cost. At this time my only option is to pay the dealer to un-bolt all three rear seat belts from the frame, remove and disassemble the entire rear seat, remove the center seat belt from inside the seat back, install a new and working seat belt assembly and finally, put the car back together all to the tune of their hourly rate plus parts. In the mean time, my 5 passenger car is a 2 passenger car. Hope to have a response soon. Thank you for your attention in this frustrating situation.
