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 #1

ES 350 6-cyl

At about 2:00 pm on Dec 26, 2011, while parking in a public covered garage, I turned into the parking space, positioned my car, and was about to turn off the engine when the car lurched forward, hitting the concrete wall in front of me. The passenger in my car, my 21 year old daughter, also a licensed driver, felt the car lurch and accelerate forward. Since I had reached a good parking position, I am certain that I had my foot on the brake and would not have been trying to accelerate. The injury to my foot, from all indications, shows that my foot was on the break. I had it X-rayed on Dec 27 at a patient first medical facility and also was seen on Dec 28, by my family physician. He examined my foot and indicated that my ankle sprain was injured as I was braking; it would not have sustained that injury if my ankle would have been on the accelerator.
