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.

Aveo

  • 50,000 miles
I have a 2006 Aveo. Every since we bought it when you apply the brake it speeds up. It does not do this all the time. This last time I almost T-boned a truck. I stopped it by turning off the key and just avoided a wreck. Have you had any other complaints about this? I contacted the dealer when this first happened and they said that nothing was wrong with the car. After what has happened with Toyota I'm concerned.
