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 engine speed will not return to idle speed until the vehicle comes to a complete stop. Idle speed 825rpm hot 2000rpm cold 1200rpm while the vehicle is rolling this event makes it very difficult to stop the vehicle (more so on slippery roads) constant and excessive use of the brakes.. I have told this to the dealer and they have said that this is a normal condition, there is no adjustment. They say that they have checked into the problem.
