The remedy is : "SET will notify owners, and dealers will disconnect the heaters with copper strand heating elements and refund the purchase price of the seat heater accessory, free of charge"
That is considered a remedy?
This reminds me of a recall on certain GM 3.8 V6 engines. The spark plug wires on the front back are routed through a plastic channel that snaps onto the front valve cover. When the front valve cover gasket starts leaking oil due to age, the oil can get on the plastic channel, and then onto the hot exhaust manifold below it which could catch fire. The plastic channel increases the chance of a fire, so the fix is to remove the plastic channel. No mention of repairing the oil leak, just yank a part and toss it.
