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.

The vehicle idled in my driveway for 1-2 minutes. I backed the vehicle down the driveway. I put my foot on the brake and shifted into drive. The vehicle unexpectedly revved up to 3-4000 RPM without pressing the accelerator. As my foot was firmly on the brake, the vehicle did not move. I took the vehicle to a dealership. The dealership checked the vehicle and test drove it. They could not find a problem or replicate the incident. No repairs were made to the vehicle.
