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 parked in driveway and I was loading my kids in the van, my 2 year old child jumped into front seat, and shifted the autmatic transmission into reverse or neutral (not sure), allowing van to start rolling forward (it was backed into driveway, so the front of the van was downhill) I was standing in front of the van, and it was just starting to roll so it was going slowing so I and a couple of other guys who were standing there with me were able to jump in front of the fan and stop it, I then jumped in and applied the parking brake and shifted it back into park. There was no way the brake could have been pushed while the van was shifted, as the 2 year old could not reach the brake.
