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) na; (2) seat heater control switch location. Easy/often inadvertant activation when operating window or mirror controls. Activation is not noticed because the indicator lights do not face the driver. The first indication is when your butt starts to fry. Attempts to deactivate the heater is dangerous because the indicator lights do not face the driver so you have to divert your attention from the road to operate the heater. I have run off the road several times trying to turn off the heater while driving. Also, the seat heater gets too hot and presents a risk of burn injuiry or fire. (3) todate nothing.
