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.

Vehicle failed to stop and engine speed increased. Break pedal was fully depressed. Accelerator pedal was not was not depressed. Vehicle only stopped when transmission was put in neutral. A serious accident was narrowly avoided. Will bring vehicle to dealer for check-out asap.
