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.

On 3/3/08 I was returning home from picking up my daughter from school. I made a left hand turn onto jones chapel road and when I went to accelerate the car full throttled on it's own. I tried mashing the brakes and it only slowed my car by 10 miles an hour or so. I finally put the car in neutral(the engine continued to rev very high) and shut my car off. I had roadside tow it and it is still at the dealership. They have been unable to duplicate the problem. There was nothing in the floor board and my car floor mat is secured by a peg. When the car took off it literally jerked mine and my daughter's heads back.
