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.

problem #2

  • 18,000 miles
At various times when we depress the accelerator pedal the engine will not respond. Until we tap on the pedal several times then the engine RPM's will advance. This condition is very hazardous because if we are trying to merge into moving traffic the vehicle will only move at engine idle speed. This condition could cause a serious crash or even death as we never know when the vehicle will fail to accelerate.
