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.

Incident 1, on Saturday February 5, 2005 while maneuvering into a space in a parking lot I shifted into reverse with my foot on the brake suddenly the car, 2004, Jeep, Grand Cherokee lurched backward. I pressed more firmly on the brake pedal and car jerked. Then, the engine revved higher, causing the car to hurtle toward cars in the row behind. Only by standing on the brake pedal did the vehicle stop, but just inches from a car behind us. Dealer's mechanic subsequently could find nothing wrong, and could not duplicate the event. Incident 2 occurred on Wednesday April 20, 2005. While braking gently when approaching a red traffic light the engine suddenly started revving quickly. I braked harder, but the engine revved higher, overcoming the braking effort I again stood on the brake, bringing the car to a halt only a few feet from a car waiting at the light. Examination of the brake pedal at this time showed that my foot was only on the brake pedal, and not near the accelerator pedal, and that nothing was pressing on the accelerator pedal.
