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.

On my 2001 Land Rover Discovery II my gas pedal would get stuck, especially when first turning the car on. Sometimes I would press on the gas pedal and and I'd have to press doubly hard to get the car to move, of course resulting in a bigger forward surge than I expected which is dangerous. Sometimes I would just tap on the gas pedal and it would surge forward on its own. This reminded me very much of the major recall a dozen or so years ago of the Audi cars that had a similar problem. When I brought it to the dealer, I had to pay $89 to fix it. They said that yes they know about the problem--the throttle gets dirt in it and backed up and clogged so they have to clean it out. In fact, the service person said, it is so common a problem that he then picked up a throttle on the table, and said they keep this throttle here on display in the showroom to show customers how it gets stuck. Although I fixed this problem on March 15, 2004, this incident always bothered me. I feel that the manufacturer knows of this problem which can be quite dangerous and that the problem is actually frequent enough that they have a model on display to warrant it a recall.

When attempting to apply the brake pedal consumer is actually depressing accelerator pedal at same time. Consumer feels that brake pedal and accelerator pedal are too close which is causing pedal misapplication.
