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 in motion on rural highway in moderate traffic, I made a quick short gun on gas pedal(not all the way down) as I was going thru yellow traffic signal light. The engine delayed it's revving, then revved, got stuck at high RPM. A red "electronic throttle control" indicator appeared on dashboard. With foot off gas pedal, the vehicle speeds up forward. Had a close call at braking with vehicle in front of me. Braking lowered the RPM but increases RPM / speed again when releasing brake pedal. Stuck with this issue for about a quarter of a mile. Issue disappeared when I came to a complete stop before making a turn. There was a strong feeling of click then the red throttle issue indicator disappeared. Happened once first time this am. No issue thereafter as I have not tried gunning the gas pedal again. I'm reporting this NHTSA first but need to know where to go next.

When backing up an 10% incline to back up into a parking space (first time since buying the van new with 8 miles on it) the vehicle shudders all the way until it stops. I have not experienced this in drive gears (yet). I have driven this van up and down briefly in the mountains, no issue while driving was noticed.
