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.

My wife and I had just left a local business mid-day on a warm dry summer day. Was less than a block away and traveling slowly at approx 20 mph. Applied brake as we rolled up to a stop sign. Engine started to increase RPM on its own requiring evermore increasing brake pedal pressure in an attempt to come to a stop. Standing on the brake pedal engine RPM reached 2500. I put the gear select into neutral. The brakes grabbed, the engine RPM shot up and returned to standard idle. I put the car in drive and car behaved normal after that. This has occurred approx 6 times over past year. Took it to dealer twice with no resolution. Floor mats secure and locked down. I drive right foot only and brake cleanly and square on the brake pedal. This only occurs at low speed, when engine is warm, and even squealed the tires ( burned rubber ) once. Must slam into neutral to get it to stop.
