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.

Floor mats (factory installed) have an adhesive velcro on the underside to attach to the floor of the vehicle. In the heat the adhesive holding the velcro becomes unattached allowing the floor-mat to shift forward and depress the accelerator.

problem #1

Pedestrian (daytime) warning and avoidance system activated spontaneously on an empty street - there was no pedestrian in sight and no car in front of me. The car automatically suddenly brake violently and a truck right behind me almost hit me. I feel this is a serious safety issue as it has potential for a serious accident if this were to happen again in a more crowded street. It is disconcerting to drive a car that may suddenly brake without warning!
