Complaint - Seat Belts

RIDING DOWN THE ROAD AND MY 12 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER GOT TANGLED IN THE SEAT BELT. WE PULLED INTO A GAS STATION AND TRIED TO GET THE SEAT BELT TO RELEASE- IT WOULD NOT RELEASE. IT KEPT EATING ANY SLACK WE GAVE IT AND KEPT TIGHTENING ON HER. IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE SHE, NOR I (BECAUSE OF THE POSITION) COULD HOLD HER BODY WEIGHT UP ANY MORE- IT WAS STARTING TO CUT INTO HER SIDE. I YELLED CAN ANYONE HELP WE NEED TO CUT A SEAT BELT AND THANK GOODNESS A YOUNG MAN CAME OVER AND WAS ABLE TO CUT THE BELT OFF. I THEN TOOK THE CAR TO THE HONDA DEALER WHO REPLACED THE BELT AND FILED A COMPLAINT WITH HONDA ABOUT THE SEAT BELT- THEY TOOK THE COMPLAINT- HOWEVER THEY REFUSED TO TELL ME ANYTHING ELSE. A SUPERVISIOR FROM HONDA CUSTOMER SERVICE- STATED THAT THE SEAT BELT WOULD BE LOOKED INTO AND THAT I SHOULD HEAR IF IT WAS MALFUNCTIONING OR WHAT CAME OF THE INSPECTION OF WHY THE BELT LOCKED UP. I CALLED TODAY 3/23 TO FOLLOW UP WITH HONDA SPOKE TO ANOTHER SUPERVISIOR - HE TOLD ME THAT THE PART WAS UPSTAIRS IN A BOX AND THAT THEY DO NOT OPEN OR TOUCH THE BELT. THAT BECAUSE IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY THEY JUST KEEP IT, HE SAID HE WOULD LOOK INTO IT AND CONTACT ME...I WAIT ... MY ISSUE IS WHY DID THIS HAPPEN- I KNOW SEATBELTS ARE TO PROTECT US BUT THIS WAS DANGEROUS- THERE WAS NO WAY TO RELEASE THE BELT OTHER THEN CUTTING IT. SAFETY ISSUE ESPECIALLY FOR CHILDREN.
