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.

Not long after I bought this car, the element on the drivers side heated seat stopped working. It was under warranty and it was repaired. Then it went again and it was under the extended warranty and again it was repaired. Now this winter, I went to use it and again the element went for the third time. I feel that something has to be causing this problem because it could possibly be dangerous and start a fire. The car dealership says that they will repair it for $429 (this is a 10% discount) but I feel that since this has happened three times already Ford should be responsible for the repair and also find the problem that is causing this element to fail in the first place.
