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 IM ON THE HIGHWAY DRIVING, WHEN THE CAR IS ABOUT TO CATCH SOME SPEED, IT START ACTING UP, HESITATING TO CATCH SPEED..LIKE IS GOING TO STALL.

Update from Aug 10, 2012: My truck never accelerated real high again to the point of my rpm getting stuck. But is until today when i drive the truck the rpm idle goes out of whack, up and down, the truck starts loosing its speed to where i press on the gas, it acts like its goin to stall but it picks up. There is times while i drive the truck it picks up speed with out me pushing in the gas pedal. It is so scary. i just received paperwork about the acceleration recall. taking the truck the middle of August to see what happens.
