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.

From:[xxx] subject:2006 Lexus gx 470 acceleration hello, my 44 year-old wife [xxx] was driving her 2006 Lexus gx 470 this morning in seattle, wa. As she was pulling into a parking space, the car suddenly accelerated. Despite hitting the brakes several times, the car did not stop and ended up jumping a curb and crashing into a chain link fence. Thankfully no one was hurt. She called our Lexus dealership in bellevue, wa. They told us that since it was a product liability issue they would not provide us a loaner car and would not be able to inspect the car for two weeks. My wife has no confidence in our Lexus and wants to sell it as soon as it is fixed up from the accident (we are filing an insurance claim and also filed a police report). I am also very unhappy with the response of Lexus not to provide a loaner vehicle and immediately inspect the car. A friend of ours suggested we contact NHTSA. You may reach me at [xxx] or [xxx]. please advise if there any other actions we should take at this point in time.
