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 owns a 2015 Chevrolet Equinox. While driving at a low speed and attempting to park, the brake pedal was depressed, but the vehicle jerked and accelerated independently. As a result, the contact drove over a concrete divider and crashed into a building. The air bags failed to deploy. There were no injuries and a police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to an auto body repair center for body repairs. The vehicle was not diagnosed based on the failure. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and sent a technician to inspect the vehicle. The failure mileage was 7,500.

Driving down highway at 11:15pm, using cruise control set at 62 mph, applied brake to slow down as I entered small town. Coming out of town passed slow vehicle, sped up to around 65. Took foot off gas pedal and pedal went straight to the floor and stuck. Forgot about my onstar. Tapped pedal a couple times to unstick it, nothing. Applied brake a couple times, nothing. Stood on brakes, just jerking down the road. Looked and was up to 85 mph, pushed cruise control button to turn it completely off. Nothing was helping. Finally the pedal popped back up and hit the bottom of my foot, and we were able to finally slow down. This was a very terrifying experience and I am afraid to drive my car.
