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.

CT 200h

Car surges when braking and going over speed bump, train tracks, pot holes going between 20 - 35 miles. This has happened about 5-6 times since with 1/14 happening I have had the car. I have asked for Lexus of palm beach to do health check, brake check and all systems are ok, but something is not right. Just worried that when car surges, me and/or my family or passengers get injured
