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.

During the last time that I have used my 2005 Jeep Cherokee, the accelerator got stuck, the vehicle accelerated from a speed of about 55 to 90 to 100 before I could stop the vehicle this occurred several times.

We have a safety issue with the adjustable gas pedal in our company car a 2005 Jeep. The problem is that the pedal adjustment has no indicator that lets you know that the pedal has been moved by another employee. Recently we had an event were an employee drove the car a long distance and did not know that the Jeep had an adjustable pedal. The employee complained that his foot cramped during the 300 mile trip and he did not know why. He was not aware of the adjustable pedal feature of the Jeep since there was no indicator light or gauge to let him know that the pedal had been set for a much shorter person. The employee also complained that during this trip he found himself driving faster than the speed limit and had to use cruise control to maintain his speed...again he was not aware that the pedal had been moved closer to the driver and his normal position of his foot pushed the pedal down more then normal.
