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.

On 4/16/2014 I scot E. brauninger was stopped at traffic light in my vehicle a 2010 Chevy express 1500 van, on plank rd. Heading East towards central park in fredericksburg, va I was behind another vehicle and as the light turned green and before I had a chance to move the van raced and went forward with an unusual increase in engine rpms and the vehicle abnormally accelerated into the back of the vehicle in front of me. I had no control of the acceleration and could not stop by using my brakes. As the short time that all of this occurred I did not have time to turn off the ignition. The damage to both vehicles are extensive and also air bags did not deploy at all.
