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 side heated seat element had burned both my wife and myself. about 3-4 minutes after it is turned on, it literally fries any sitting on the seat.

problem #1

Pilot EX-L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 178,000 miles

Driver's seat heater gets so hot even on low setting that it is uncomfortable and possibly a fire hazard. It heats to the point of smelling very hot as if something is melting. I have been unable to use this feature on my Pilot for some time. From my internet search it appears I am not the only one with this problem. It seems to be a manufacturer defect.
