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 2002 Volvo S60 had sat outside during the duration of a very hot day. While waiting stopped at the parking lot stop sign about to enter road traffic a sound resembling an uncoiling spring was detected and the seat belt tension let go and the belt went slack onto my lap. There car was not in motion while this event occurred.

The front passenger seatbelt retracted and would not move to engage the passenger. It was stuck in place. The dealer examined it and said it was not possible to fix because it is a 'closed system' and would need to be replaced. They would charge over $650 to replace it for parts and labor.
