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.

When the vehicle is cold the accelerator pedal will not go down. Vehicle has to warm up before the accelerator pedal will operate normally. Owner was informed that the accelerator throttle cable needed to be replaced. Dealer replaced the cable, and the vehicle was operating normally. The consumer stated that the gas pedal stuck and the vehilce reached 90 mph.
