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.

I love the heated seats in the winter. it was one reason I went with the higher trim level. it stopped working around winter time last year. I've found other sites with owners reporting the same issue. I suspect after reading the sites that a wire in the element is broken. I was able to find a site that documents where the wire usually breaks and how a quick solder repair will resolve the problem. I have not tried it yet but I plan to soon. Google it and you should be able to find the same site along with pictures.
