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.

Recently noticed when brakes are applied that the pedal will slowly sink to the floor causing my foot to be pressing the gas pedal at the same time. At a stop light it causes the anti brakes to come on and to proceed through the stop light.

- the contact stated that the 2006 Buick Lucerne would not move forward after the vehicle came to a complete stop. The contact waited approximately 25 seconds before he was able to proceed. He had to push the accelerator a couple of times before the vehicle accelerated. Also, the vehicle would accelerate by itself without warning. The contact stated there was no particular time of the day, and the road conditions have been clear during every occurrence.
