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.

It was a cold night in January and I was using the seat heater. My wife was with me. We smelled smoke as my driver's seat got very warm. We never saw flames, but there was smoke. We immediately pulled over and turned the seat off. It left a hole about the size of dime in my leather seats. I have contacted Acura corporate to no avail. My car is out of warranty and they refuse to admit any issue. Based on their assessment, I should have allowed the car to go up in flames, which would have happen had I not shut off the heater.
