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 DRIVER'S SEAT IS THE SEAT THAT IS NOT WORKING, PASSENGER HEATED SEAT IS WORKING AND IT IS VERY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE LEATHER SEATS.

Suburban LT 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,000 miles

Heated seats stay on for a few seconds, then turn off. In reading other complaints on-line, this appears to be yet another CHRONIC PROBLEM for GM. Sounds like about a $300 repair bill if I don't trade this clunker in for a Ford first.

Suburban LT V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

Went to turn on the heated seats one morning and they warmed up a bit, but not like normal. I looked down and the lights were all off. I pressed the button to turn them back on and they would not stay on. This happened to both the front seats. I really enjoyed the heated seats and found out the cost was going to be very high to fix this, so I just left it broken and later traded the vehicle in on a newer one and bought an extended warranty.
