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.

Upon on starting the vehicle and dropping into drive or reverse the vehicle accelerates on its on, the the tachometer jumps to 1000 and even up to 1500 without touching the accelerator. I have brought the vehicle three time to different dealerships and they could fix the issue. I have almost collided with multiple vehicles in parking lots and almost ran into our building, I have to step on the break very hard to reduce the car lunging forward, the car still travels with my brake on, if there were a child or person in front of me they would be injured severely, this is very unsafe. I have video of the tachometer going from 0-1000 almost coming to a stall, it has stalled two times in the past.
