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.

While attempting to parallel park, the car jumped without warning and crashed into a brand new hearse in front of a mortuary. Applied the gas pedal once with no response, applied again with a surprise surge of the car and crashed into the hearse causing extensive damage to both vehicles. I have made at least 3 inquiries of the dealer since owning the car concerning the surging. I was given three different answers, ranging from using both feet (brake and gas), faulty rug design, and something to do with the computer/electric system. As I am not an electrician, I didn't understand the reasons. I feel this car is a potential terrible accident to happen and am, frankly, afraid for my lady and myself to drive the car, as much as we really like it. I am convinced that the accident is not the driver's fault, but rests solely with a defect, or bad design, in the system that causes intermittent surging with this car. I would like absolution from insurance liability in this accident, as I don't feel the accident could be avoided due to the intermittent problem with surging.
