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.

SRX 6-cyl

  • 4,000 miles
My wife has complained several times over the last year about sudden acceleration by her car. I did not pay much attention until she hit a car in a parking lot because her car jumped forward. No one was in the other car and my wife was not hurt. It happened again about a week ago so I took it to the dealer. They made some software adjustments suggested by General Motors including one that read "addressing long hesitation/delays occurring when driver coasts to around 10mph and steps into an aggressive pedal".
