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.

I turned on the heated seats in my car and a strange burning smell filled the car. I immediately turned them off. When I got home and took my coat off there was a large burn whole on the back of my coat. I went and checked the seats and there was a large whole burned thru the seat in the same area as my coat was.I was in motion when this happened

I have had multiple problems with my vehicle, mainly with suspension and with the fuel system. I had them replace the fuel system in 3/13 and once again I am having problems with leakage in the fuel system.

My wife was driving when she smelled something burning and then felt something burning, she pulled over and jumped out to check and found the seat warmer had malfunctioned and burned through the back portion of the seat. Her shirt had a slight burn to it and smoke covered interior of the car. The hole in the seat is about the size of a cigarette burn but deeper. She took it to the import repair shop who disconnected the power source wire to the seat heater for safety.

Beginning at approximately 60,500 miles my 2007 Mercedes Benz E350 4matic sedan developed a strong gasoline odor inside the vehicle. This smell progressively got stronger and upon inspection at the dealership it was found that the sending units attached to the fuel tanks below the rear driver's side and passenger side seats were leaking fuel through a faulty seal causing the fuel to absorb into the seat cushion. This likely created a potential fire hazard inside the cabin of the vehicle, particularly in the rear seat.

Driving 25-30 mph and smoke started poring out from under the drivers seat after turning on the seat heater and a small burn hole appeared on the left side of the upper seat back. Major safety issue since the cabin of the vehicle filled with smoke. Took the car to the dealer where they had to order a new seat back and would not cover the repairs.

Turned drivers seat heat feature on, after a few minutes I smelled burning. Mercedes just repaired A/C (3 visits) so turned off the A/C. next think I know smoke is coming from drivers seat, my 3yr old riding in her car seat "installed" behind me. Heater in drivers seat was burning, with the air no longer blowing, smoke was now visible. I had to cross 3 lanes of traffic to pull over. The "fire" burned a hole through the leather seat to my jeans leaving me a slight burn. Car towed to Mercedes.
