Thinking about the last post

In thinking about the last post, I think maybe I was incorrect and overly harsh on Lexus. Only the seatbelt retractor is probably made of plastic. The part that locks the belt in an accident, and the part that pretensions the belt, are probably metal. You're probably safe.. After all, they do test these things. Not after 170,000 miles and 14 years, probably, but tested nonetheless. Of course, if the retractor breaks, it's highly unlikely that the belt will be fitting you properly (snugly) before your accident, so the other parts wouldn't be able to do their job. Oh well. I bought the belt on ebay, so now I just have to wait on it to arrive.
