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.

The driver's seat heater malfunctioned burning a hole through the upholstery and my sweater as I drove my 2 minutes to work. I turned the heat seat on the lowest setting for warmth and within the commute from home to work, it malfunctioned. There is a 2 cm hole in my car seat and my sweater has burn marks on it. I turned off the heater as soon as I felt the over heating on my rearend, but it was too late.
