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.

: the contact stated while backing out a parking spot, the vehicle shot out with the brake pedal applied and hit a concrete post. The contact then put the vehicle in drive and the vehicle shot forward. The brake pedal was depressed a few times and the vehicle was driven home. There was minor damage to the rear fender and the front driver side door and headlight. The vehicle was towed to the dealership where they were unable to determine a problem. The manufacturer sent a representative who was also unable to determine a problem. Updated 4/6/2006 -
