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.

Vehicle is equipped with factory heated cloth seats. For the first two years all was well then the drivers seat stopped heating. Dealer replaced elements. Since then, repeated elements and fabric have been changed. Element impression has been in the fabric ever since. Seat runs extremely hot and has been serviced several times since new. GM/Pontiac deemed this normal operation and sent the customer home. This vehicle has been serviced at least three or four times for this same problem and GM has no answers. Obviously there is a temperature issue if you can see the heat element impression in the cloth upholstery. At this point we don't feel comfortable using this option due to excessive high temperature. Concerned that there may be a fire issue if we continue to use it.
