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.

Driving through a tunnel my car began to fill with smoke. I pulled over and looked for where the smoke came from and found the switch to my heated seats was on fire. My car would no longer turn on. Repair man at dealership says it's something that just happens I guess. Somewhere something shorted. I'm just glad my child was not in the car when this happened. Beware!! there are current recalls for the exact make and model in australia and europe for the same issue. I'm still waiting for the us the issue a recall so I can get my money back.
