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.

While on the highway, the gas pedal dropped to the floor and the car accelerated out of control. Applying the brakes did not stop the vehicle. The car had accelerated to over 85 mph when I pulled to the shoulder lane. I then stood up on the brake pedal, slowed the car down to 35 mph and turned the car off. The car eventually came to a stop. An aaa tow truck came out to help. The tow truck operator confirms that when he towed the truck that the gas pedal was still on the floor. When the car was dropped off at the dealer, the pedal was back in a more normal position. The dealer was unable to find anything wrong with the vehicle.

As my wife, starla lee citarella, was pulling into a parking space the brake pedal pad slipped off as she applied the brakes. Her foot then hit the gas pedal, causing vcehicle to accelerate. She was able to direct the car away from the parked cars around her and went up a small em bankement, striking a light post and a small tree. She proceded over the small hill and came to rest on the downward slope.
