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.

While driving, I pushed gas pedal down to accelerate quickly. Engine revved to high RPM and car accelerated and RPM stayed high in spite of letting off of gas pedal. Initially I put car in neutral and engine continued at high RPM. I tapped hard on gas pedal and pedal released. This recurred again when I pushed down on pedal. Appeared to be due to Lexus floor mat catching on bottom of gas pedal. I called Lexus dealer and was told this had never been reported. (I had already had the recalled pedal replacement done). I pulled the floor mat back to prevent the edge catching on the pedal. Approximately one month later the problem recurred--presumably because the mat has slowly pushed forward over the last month.
