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 seatbelts do not appear to retract properly. There is a small light in the door of the vehicle which has been broken on 3 occassions because the seatbelt did not retract prior to the door closing. The dealer did repair this and mentioned that they have had several complaints about this defect but there was no recall. Also if the seatbelt becomes loose because of driver/passenger movement it does not retract or become tight around the waist again. To try to clarify this, if after initially setting the belts when you get in to the vehicle and you have movement that allows the seatbelt to expand around your waist the seatbelt remains expanded. So if an accident were to arise you would not be properly restrained. Best regards, randy gibson
