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.

Distance between the gas and brake pedals are designed poorly. When transfering feet from one pedal to another, consumer's foot will get stuck between the pedals.

The brake pedal and the gas pedal are too close, and gas pedal is 1/2 inch lower. When stepping on the brake pedal can hit the gas pedal at the same time. Dealer states no modification because of design specifications. Consumer states he has a big foot in this case.
