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 wearing my dress shoes for church today (size 13) I pivoted my foot from the accelerator toward the brake pedal and encountered a solid object that prevented me from actuating the brakes. As I pushed harder (presuming something was holding the brake pedal up) my shoe slipped off the solid object and slammed into the brake pedal causing a rather abrupt stop. Upon inspection I could see the solid object was an air vent with a sharp lower edge that grabbed my shoe. Clearly, there should some sort of guard over the sharp opening so that even in a panic stop when someone raises their foot even higher than I did, the shoe would easily slip off.
