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.

The throttle is erratic. Sometimes acceleration from a stop is smooth and sometimes its as if the throttle is binding against something. Other times the throttle is depressed and nothing happens until the vehicle suddenly lurches forward. The last episode was pulling into a parking place and the engine suddenly went into idle. I mashed the gas more and more and it suddenly almost lurched over the curb. I have had it to[xxx] in plano Texas on several occasions, even leaving it for several days for them to drive. They changed several items on the transmission, but in the last few days it has worsened(more frequent). There are no error codes, but it is becoming unsafe to drive. I have to leave the car with a parking valet when my wife receives medical treatment and this could be problematic.
