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.

Sometimes, the car from a stand still or low speed (below 10-15 mph) has a delay between throttle input and actual acceleration. This delay of acceleration has caused many close calls for accidents and/or sudden braking needed because of over acceleration. Between my research on this issue and experiences with this, I can reliably reproduce this issue. But due to the nature of this issue, without proper documentation equipment, I cannot provide any concrete data (besides other data provided by various source with professional equipment.)
