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.

I was using the warming seats and had pulled up to the post office to drop a letter in the box. The letter had fallen to the ground. I got out and placed the letter in the box. I got back in the car and pulled up to keep from holding up traffic while I had replaced my seat belt. A SUV had crossed my path when I smelled something burning. I assumed it was exhaust from the SUV. I was about to pull off the parking lot when I noticed thick white smoking coming from my seat. I immediately turned off the seat warmer. The smoke dissipated afterwards.I continued to drive the car about 1/2mile to the grocery store. I got out and noticed a burn on seat.
