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.

  • miles
While accelerating from a stopped position through a red light, when I reached 40 mph the motor started roaring as if I was pushing the gas peddle in a parked position. The vehicle accelerated over 90 mph. I tried to slow the vehicle by pushing and stomping on the brake peddle. After about 10 stomps the vehicle's motor stopped the roaring and proceeded to slow down. I have had the brakes checked and repaired (there was a hole in my brake line, where the line goes up on the body frame under driver side seat) I still have issues with the engine accelerating on it's own. I have had it checked out, but can not find the problem.
