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 was driving to work in snowy Chicago weather, when not only was my leg getting REALLY hot, but I smelled smoke. I turned off the seat heater just in time to find a brown hole and smoldering smoke under my leg. Short of getting a new drivers seat, I just had both seat heaters disconnected for safety after learning that this is not uncommon. Some have caught fire. Very scary. Of course it happened JUST out of warranty.
