Obviously there isn't enough stress in my life. I was just sent an article saying there is a potential seat belt problem with my vehicle.

WASHINGTON — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is looking into complaints about middle-row seatbelts that may jam in 2004-'05 Toyota Sienna minivans.

In a statement, NHTSA said it has identified 40 consumer complaints about the Sienna's seatbelts and noted Toyota has replaced about 3,100 of the components under warranty. Toyota has not announced a safety recall of the Sienna.

Love that. LOOOOOOVE it.

That's the one she actually sent me. This sucks.

Like I have the frickin' time for this crap. GRRR.

Well, at least it isn't one of the cars with my control arm in it. Those are shattering. Yeah - That's just lovely.

But I am sorry about the seatbelt recall. Still a pain in the arse.

Funny you should say that about the control arm. That's the first daggum thing I thought of! LOL!

Don't you love how Toyota informed you of it before someone else? (Notice the sarcasm as this was being said).

VW- Yes. GRRR. I have to go there anyway, I have some things I have to take care of, but all of it is waiting until the boys are back in school or until my hubby can watch them. My personal hell: 3 boys at the mechanic's or car dealerships for more than 30 minutes. Just frickin' shoot me.

3 Boys at a car dealership? That's heaven for them! Don't worry, the employees won't dare say anything to you because they want you to buy stuff! Just open the door and let them go. They'll start looking in cars and the salesmen will just watch them.
