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.

Was driving my car when all the sudden it accelerated up to 40+mph with our me even touching pedal... I attempted to hit brakes but it kept going and slammed into curb on passenger side.. no body damage was done but I destroyed both rims, tires are flat and wheels are bent which I'm assuming is the alignment and suspension... I just bought/financed this car from a used lot on 10-18-2014 and now owe for a car that's pretty much totaled... however I did notify them that night (5 hrs after purchase) that the car was revving high and accelerating and hard to stop. I also took video of this... but I had to work all week and didn't have time to go in and complain about issue.. then on Friday October 24th after I got off work and was almost home.. the car sped up and I couldn't stop it had to hit curb in order to stop car from driving me through an intersection and into a concrete wall. And now the car is parked in my complex, and can't be driven.... I'm just extremely thankfull that my wife and newborn were not with me this time..

The contact states there was a popping noise in the steering when turning. The dealership could not find where the noise was coming from. However the suspension worked erratically. There was a tear where the passenger's side airbag was located, and the light indicates it was off. The dealership was unaware that there was a tear under the airbag and why it happened. Also, they did not check to see if there was an airbag in the vehicle.
