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 was on the interstate 30 East bound just East of downtown fort worth traveling at 55 mph in my 2009 F 150. I began accelerating to overtake a slower vehicle. The throttle stuck at what seem to be a wide open position, I had passed the car and let off the gas and pressed the brake 3 times before for the truck stopped accelerating and I had reached a speed of 95 mph before I was able to get the truck back under control. It seemed like the throttle was stuck for around 10 seconds, which was a very scary 10 seconds. I just finished reading a few forums where the dealership said it was the rubber floor mats that caused the problem. Well I have not put floor mats in my truck so that was defiantly not the cause of the problem.
