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.

I have a unsafe vehicle that is dangerous for myself and the public. The dealership has fail to take responsibility for the problem. There is a recall for the problem and it was extended as well. ( carbon buildup). The registration history on the vehicle is very strange, it does not seem to be accurate, I believe this vehicle was a defect and the dealership has tampered the vehicle to cover the history. The vehicle service history has been purge and deleted for unknown reason. I am getting different answers and no help with the problem. It has cause me a lot of distress and concern, I have spent thousands of dollars trying to make it safe but from research this is a common defect for this particular vehicle and it can not be repaired.

Car parked parallel to curb. Opened door, got into driver's seat, fastened seat belt, turned on ignition, as normal. Shifted from park into drive, immediately engine began to "rev up" uncontrolled, based on sound from engine. After a few seconds of increasing pitch of engine noise, car jumped the curb, over the adjacent side walk, and slammed into the brick wall in front of my house, slid along the wall, and car ended up against the fence of next door neighbor. Car moved about 6 feet in 2-3 seconds. Right hand and wrist of driver was injured on impact, trapezium bone broken in half, and a portion of bone smashed into little pieces. Hand and wrist muscles and tendons strained. Surgery was required two weeks later to put 4 metal rods in wrist to assist healing. In cast for total of 8+ weeks. Many sessions of occupational therapy will be needed to restore wrist and hand function, some loss of function is anticipated, and arthritis in wrist may result. Car damage included front bumper, front grill, front spoiler, grill assembly, headlamp, head lamp assembly, fog lamps, rt front wheel, right front lower arm control, right, left outer tie rod.
