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.

Got in car to drive, driver seat warm (thought due to parked in phoenix sun). But within 10 minutes unbearable heat driver seat, needed 2 pads to protect. Seat heater was off, no light, but I toggled switch to see if help, it did not. Car parked at work 15 minutes after starting journey. 2 1/2 hrs later person in parking lot noted smoke coming from inside car, called fire department. They noted inside full of smoke and glow under driver seat. Opened door to extinguish fire and car burst into flames ala the movie backdraft. Entire interior melted.
