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.

Wrangler 6-cyl

I was driving on the palisades parkway going about 60 mph and the accelerator pedal stuck and would not return to idle. I was able tp pull to side of road and shut vehicle off. When vehicle was restarted the idle was over 4000 rpms. I am an ase certified mechanic and on inspection found the throttle body seized open. Throttle body will need to be replaced. This could have been very serious if traffic was heavy or an inexperienced person was behind the wheel.
