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 2003 Chevrolet Impala. After driving for five minutes the accelerator pedal will stick to the floor. Usually after repeated brake application the pedal will release. The dealer was contacted and they stated that they would have to clean out the accelerator box. The repair cost over $100 and it takes between 15 to 20 minutes for completion. They cannot guarantee that the repair will remedy the failure. No repairs have been made. The failure mileage was 55000. The current mileage was 62000.
