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 traveling in my car at approximately 30 mph. I slowed for a traffic light. As I was coming to a stop (right foot on the brake), the engine began to rev, the rear wheels started to turn propelling me forward. I placed both feet on the brake, pushed the brake to the floor, however the RPM gauge was moving to maximum and the car continued to propel me forward. The rear end started sliding to the left. I slammed the car into park and the tires stopped moving, the rpms dropped, and the electrical system shorted resulting in taking the radio offline and to station 600 am. I was able to avoid the stopped vehicle in front of me by 2 inches. This is the second time this has happened. The vehicle was evaluated approx 1 month ago for the same type of failure, but they were unable to reproduce the event. Of note, on December 13, 2004, the vehicle went into reverse and would not come out of reverse. The vehicle was evaluated by the dealership, the gear shift was replaced, the trans cable bolt had fallen out, it was replaced, and the cable was adjusted.
