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 had one of the worst experiences happened with my car today. Im on my way to the store to get detergent before heading to laundromat. I noticed when I entered the vehicle to start it up that the driver seat was extremely warm which was strange because the car sat overnight and it is winter. As I let the car warm up I realized that the seat became hot and when I started to drive it became hotter to the point where it felt my thighs and rear were burning. I had to put a blanket on the seat just to get some relief. I made it to the laundromat but by the time I'd finished washing and took my belongings back to the car I smelled something burning. That's when I noticed smoke coming from the drivers seat. I immediately took the blanket off the seat and noticed a burn stain on the seat. The seat was still extremely hot and I was in total disbelief. I was really scared to drive home because I didn't know if the car would catch fire or if I would suffer any burns. The crazy part about this is that I never turned on the seat warmer and had not used it for a few days because I try not to use it all the time. Now I have to take off work and take it to the auto shop to see how I can rectify this problem which im hoping will not cost an "arm and leg". im so disappointed right now. I've had this car for 8yrs now and can say that I never expected this to happen. I just know that this has totally turned me away from the thought of having heated seats in my next car. So sad!!!!
