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.

Parked. Started car, put in reverse. Car surged backward at a very fast speed. Luckily I had my foot on the brake. 2nd incident 2-27-15. Pulling into parking place. Approximately 2 mph. Removed foot from accelerator to apply brake. Car surged forward at a very fast speed and hit a cement/metal pole at the front of the parking space. Lucky it wasn't a person or another car. Dealer says they checked car and no problems.
