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.

1 yr after purchasing 2006 Chevy Malibu maxx heated seats starting coming on when car was started. Dealer kinda said that we were liars because they said no one in the whole us had a problem with their seats. We went back 17 times in 3 months and they changed everything and still seats come on. Now they come on when your driving and they get very hot. Dealer does not seem to care nor GM. We have stopped going and telling them. We have complained for 4 years and they keep giving us excuses that they are waiting for GM with a solution. We would go to the dealer weekly and they would say they had not heard from GM. That's why we stopped going there. Problem seems to be getting worse as its mostly the passenger seat and it gets hot immediately after it comes on. I would say within 5 to 10 seconds after seat is on. Afraid of getting burned and also a fire. What more can we do" any suggestions"
