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.

Silverado 1500 8-cyl

While pressing on the brake pedal, the driver would also press on the accelerator pedal causing the vehicle to surge forward. Owner has made contact with the dealership. The brake pedal has to travel past the accelerator pedal to activate the brakes. As a result the accelerator pedal is accidentally pressed simultaneously.

When the vehicle made sudden stops, the brake pedal would go to the floor, and the vehicle didn't stop. This resulted in an accident. Ph the brake pedal was low and soft. The dealer stated that they were fine. The brakes still felt unsafe. Scc
