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 was driving the car and its been surging a little when driving can feel forward vibrations and then lets go and dose it again. The incident occured June 30 2014 and I was headed to a stop sign and my car started accelerating on its own and I had to push in clutch and press brakes pretty hard to stop the car from takin off on its own without me pushing the gas. I dont know if its the throttle sensor or whats the problem is but the car also been drivin diffferently around corners like the rear end somethin wrong and seen statements from other people statin there was a problem with their car as well. I hope you guys can help me if not I need a mechanic to fix the car.
