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.

Vehicle was being driven on highway. When attempting to exit the vehicle would not decellerate. Engine continued at over 5000 RPM. Vehicle could not be stopped with the brake. The gas pedal offerend no control over the vehicle. Vehicle had to be put into neutral to allow the brake to stop the vehicle. Once the driver managed to stop the vehicle and turn it off, if the vehicle was restarted it immediately accelerated up to 5000 RPM again. Vehicle had to be towed to dealership. This vas a life threatening situation.
