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.

The seat warmer caused the car seat to catch a fire. I was crying, shaking, and just all around nervous. I had to gather myself together to even think of what to do. This happened in like 3 minutes. At 6:05am I had went out to crank the car which was parked to warm up. I pressed the seat warmer went back in the house because I had left a case of water on the back passenger floor. When I came back out to the care the seat was on fire. Nothing of course is open at that time in the morning and thankfully I didn't stay inside the house longer than the little time which I did. At around 8:30am I contacted the manufacturer Chevrolet to report this. They opened a claim requested pictures of the are of concern and of the vehicle which I sent. Chevrolet closed the claim with the conclusion: After careful investigation of your case, none of the available data suggests that the product allegation has any merit. If you¿D like to provide us with any additional evidence that you feel would further support your claim, please contact us again. However at this time, General Motors is unable to assume responsibility for damages and we suggest that you resolve this matter through your insurance carrier. Not only was this terrifying, endangerment to my family and loved ones this has been a very traumatic experience overall. To get this response is a insult to consumers and they should be ashamed of themselves. This is not right. What can you do to help" there have been other records showing that this is a issue that has occurred with this year make and model of this vehicle. How can you help"I can send pictures or forward via E-mail if there is a E-mail address- thank you.

Airbag trouble light would come on from time to time, now the light stays on, and passenger airbag does not come on while seat is occupied. Very concerning as I do not know if I have airbags or not. Seems that a large number of people are having the same issue.

I was stopping at a red light about to make a right hand turn. Just as the car was stopping, the back outside edge of my driver seat made a loud pop and dropped about 4 inches. After I removed the seat later, the weld, attaching the electric seat adjuster to the cross bar in the back of the seat, is ripped loose of the cross bar. This seat contains an airbag in the side of it. Had this happened in an accident, I don't think the safety features would still have prevented serious injury. The seat is a dealer item and they want over $1000 do fix.

The weld on the right front of the driver's seat must have broken because the seat started leaning toward the console. I have to adjust the power seat all the way to the floor to get it to level out enough to drive. I see that there are other incidences of this reported but all on higher mileage cars. I only have 53,000 miles on it now and it was alot less than that when I first had the issue.
