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.

Brake and gas pedal are to close together for people with larger feet. I wear a size 13 shoe and when I wear my hiking boots, I have about 1/4" clearance between the right side wall and the brake pedal, my foot continually catches on the brake pedal. I am looking into moving the brake pedal to the left or putting on a new pad to give more room in between the brake and the side wall.

The brake pedal in this vehicle is too close to the accelerator, creating a limited space for your foot. On more than one occasion my foot was impinged under the edge of the brake pedal when I attempted to remove my foot from the accelerator to brake. I feel that one may not be able to access the brake quickly in a panic stop situation.
