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.

Returning home from vacation while exiting interstate to merge with oncoming traffic at approx 60/65 mph I tapped the brake to disengage the cruise control and the vehicle to accelerate rapidly. I applied the brakes with all my force but it continued to accelerate. I was finally able to get it to the side of the road put it into park and shut the engine off., in a few minutes I restarted the motor and the car seemed ok. We drove a short way and stopped at a hotel for the night. The next morning as we started home the vents suddenly began to blow out very hot air. Neither the heat, air or fans were on. After pushing the HVAC buttons no ne of which were lighted the air suddenly stopped. I turned the air back on in a few minutes and everything worked. We drove to our dealer hendersonville cdrj and got an appt for this fri morning. The man didn't seem to have any idea of the problem. On our way home the horn started to beep intermittently for a few seconds at a time. We have not driven since then and will not until we take it back to the dealer on Friday.xwe are a retired senior couple, my husband is disabled and this van is our only vehicle and it is frightening to have been placed in such a very dangerous situation. Hopefully the dealer will be able to identify and correct this problem.

While driving the wipers, headlights, and dashboard started operating crazy. It would occur every 30 seconds and would not stop. The only solution (temporary) was to remove the fuse associated with the driver side door. This caused the craziness to stop, but now I lost all ability to operate any functions on the driver side door. The fuse was tested and it is working just fine. While this was not an immediate danger, it was still scary having this happen to me while driving with my young children in the car. We are unable to discover a permanent solution. After review, it appears we are diffidently not alone. Please figure this out!
