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.

random throttle acceleration random throttle acceleration

This truck was my baby and my hobby. I am truly heart broken at the loss of her. approx 1 yr prior to her death I was driving down highway when she randomly floored the throttle. I shut it off and coasted off the road only to not ever be able to find the issue or recreate it, not till feb 24th on the snow. It put me upside down in about 1.5 feet of water on a 20 degree F day. It was guessed to be an electrical issue but I'll never truly know.
