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.

Consumer states that there is a pedal control button on the dashboard right where the left knee comes into contact with the dashboard. As a result, inadvertent pressure from the knee can cause unintentional acceleration or deceleration depending on how the button is pushed. Consumer recommends that these pedal adjustment switch be relocated to another spot on the dash where the left knee cannot inadvertently affect the control.
