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 8/22/13, I was driving on the street about 30 miles per hour. The car was braked and locked up all by it self. My foot was on the accelerator at the time and not on the brake. The brake light lite up on the dash board and the I press the accelerator but the car would not move. When I put my foot on the brake paddle, the car would go until it hit about 10 miles per hour then locked up again. I had it towed to the Lexus service center around 10 pm. The service center was closed but the brake unlocked by itself. I drove home and drive to the Lexus dealer next day. Lexus service drove the car over 100 miles and can not find the problem. On 9/5/2913 around 8:30 pm, the car locked up again. Next day, the car was working ok. 9/7/13 around 11:30 am, I was driving 65 mph on the 605 freeway. The brake locked up again.
