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 warmers overheat. When driving, I smelled something burning. The seat warmers burned a quarter-size place in the passenger seat while my daughter was sitting in it. She got out of the car and I turned the seat warmers off, but there is a black mark in the center of the passenger seat and we can no longer use the seat warmer safely. Why hasn't the car model been recalled by Chrysler?

Passenger seat had been feeling warmer than usual for a couple months so kept the seat at heat level 3 instead of 5. it was ok for awhile but then burned a hole thru the seat as well as my jacket. Smelled the burning so I turned the seat off. Turning the seat off stopped the burning.

Heated seat on drivers side has burned two holes in the seat; now burns my thigh if I dare to turn the seat heater on. I was advised by my local service manager that there are no recalls as to the heater in the seat.
