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.

problem #1

Jun 092015


  • 170 miles
For the fourth time since taking delivery of the new car, driving on city street in moderately heavy traffic, bringing the car to a stop by depressing the brake pedal caused the car to accelerate and the engine to rev above the 3,000 RPM level. (at the last event I watched the tachometer gauge as I was braking.) each time I had to panic-depress on the brake pedal to avoid a collision with the car in front. Each time I could feel the pulsation of the ABS brake on the pedal. The following morning I took the car into the dealer and reported the chronic malfunction. I waited for a response until this morning when I received an email announcing that my car was ready for pick-up, without any mention of disposition or repair. When I called and spoke to the service representative, I was told that they could find no problems.
