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.

While driving gas pedal got stuck twice. When it happened the first time pedal was hard. Second time gas pedal would not come back up, and car continued to gain speed. Consumer tried pressing brake at same time, vehicle finally slowed down, and consumer was able to put car in neutral and turn it off. Also, stated engine was racing out of control. Took to dealer, and they were not able to duplicate problem. Consumer felt they were forced back into an unsafe car.
