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 the 2002 Silverado Chevy pu truck, there is a plastic cover over a bar under the dash board, near the gas pedal. It is possible that the tip of the sole of a driver's shoe can get snagged on that piece of plastic with the effect that the driver's foot is held down of the gas pedal. One driver experienced that.
