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 sent in this complaint a year ago and never heard back from you. Throttle sticks on my Canyon and it appears to be computer related. It continues to accelerate even after taking my foot "off the gas." It will rev down after hitting the brake pedal. Have you heard of this before? truck is standard shift and usually happens when "going through the gears".
