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.

I have never seen a car speed up by itself. My husband was about to park it in front of the house when suddenly it started to speed up. The brake did not work. The car hit two cars in front and one car behind until got to a full stop in a tree. Thanks to air bags, my husband was not injured and no one was injured. The car is completed damaged. I had no idea the car had alarms. I have the car for 8 years. I bought the used car from another driver. It is first time and last time when the alarm sounded on the car.

The car was towed for insurance. We want to have an expert checking on it. My husband had no fault. I saw what happened from my apartment window. The noise of hitting the cars was loud.

Thank you for reading my comment.
