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 started driving out of a parking lot and the car had a sudden unintended/uncontrolled acceleration while driving (or in motion). I was able to brake the car after approximately 1000 ft.

Was traveling about 25 mph on South las vegas boulevard in las vegas, Nevada, went to accelerate around a car and pushed the gas pedal down to the floor to kick it into another gear. The engine revved up and the pedal wouldn't come off the floor even when I tried to pry it off with my foot.. the car continued to rev uncontrollable until I put it in neutral and shut the car off as I traveled down the road. I pulled into a parking lot. There, at a stop, I started the car, put it in neutral, pushed the gas pedal to the floor to see if it would do it again and the car revved up. I let my foot off the gas, and the car continued to rev up with the pedal not returning back towards me-stuck to the floor board again. I had to shut it off again to release the pedal and stop the revving.
