I have a 2000 RX300 (since new). For the past 5 years, I have put a car seat on the right rear seat. It never had any issue till 2 weeks ago. However, during the past 2 weeks, the seat belt un-buckle itself twice. My son, who was sitting in the car seat, fell with the car seat. In both cases, this happened on a highway onramp with sharp right turn. I was doing 25-30mph. Those are really scary experiences, even though my son was not really hurt. I have since moved the car seat to the left. My daughter had sit in that car seat till she was almost 40lbs. My son is only 32lbs. So I don't think weight is the issue. So my questions are: how could seat belt un-buckle itself? If an adult is sitting in that seat, is the same issue going to happen? Any recommendation to fix the issue? I google, but I didn't find any reference to such an issue. Thanks.

Dt*: the contact stated while driving 35 mph, the right rear seat belt buckle failed to remain latched. when the belt was rebuckled, the buckle disengaged after 5 minutes. the service dealer was notified, but the manufacturer was not.  view
