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.

Depressing the accelerator pedal causes the vehicle to hesitate for one-half to one full second and then lurch forward, suddenly. This is a safety risk when changing lanes or accelerating to avoid a collision. The dealer's mechanic indicated (twice) that they have had problems with this model's "electronic accelerator, " and that an internal computer is supposed to "learn from the drivers' habits and adjust the acceleration accordingly." An accident can easily occur when expected power is denied upon depressing the accelerator.
