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.

problem #2

While going about 40 miles an hour on a rural highway, the car suddenly accelerated and would not stop. I was very frightened but managed to slow it down enough to pull over and turn it off. The dealer has it now but it stopped doing it and Im not sure if they will find anything.
