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.

While driving home from work I noticed a burning smell and a few minutes later saw smoke from the passenger seat and a hole burnt in the seat. The dealership says they repaired a connector and gives no further description. This repair is not documented on the receipt and the damage to the seat has not been repaired and the seat cover is not available according to the dealer. I will have to wait possibly several months for the repair to be complete. No one was sitting in the passenger seat and the heated seats were not turned on, however, this could have caused serious bodily harm.
