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.

From day one that I got my car I noticed that there is a hesitation when trying to accelerate, you can push the gas pedal and nothing happens until you advance the pedal further and then it wants to take off like you pushed it to the floor. It will loose power during driving if under 45 miles per hour. When in traffic, it is very dangerous because trying to creep with the car it will not do anything when you softly push the pedal, and will try and take off when you advance it. Almost rear ended the care in front of me because of this. This is a very problematic situation as well as dangerous. Standing still or in motion this continues to happen city and highway
