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.

2004 Jeep with 42K miles- the brake peddle has one inch of lateral movement. The dealer plans to replace the peddle assy. For about $1,000. My foot has slipped off the pedal when my shoes were wet. I am told that it can not be tighten up only replaced. To me this seems the problem is in the design on the brake linkage, and not due to normal were and tear. Its just a matter of time.

While applying the brake on 5 separate occasions, the consumer applied the brake and the accelerator pedal simultaneously. This condition caused the vehicle to accelerate unexpectedly. The dealer was notified and was aware of this issue.
