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.

Car was being pulled into space in restaurant parking lot -- space was on grass up a slight incline (approximately 12 inches) -- as car was moving up the incline a small bump was felt under the car and the car suddenly accelerated and continued to accelerate -- brakes were applied immediately but were unable to stop the car -- the car swerved and hit a tree approximately 20 feet from the parking spot -- believe the "bump" felt under the car caused the sudden acceleration -- above account can be verified by the other person in the car who had the same description of events.

My dash board cracked and this is a manufacter's issue. There are thousands w/ the same issue & Lexus does not want to be responsible. It cracks every where & melts because of the heat. Our cars are worth nothing w/ this issue. There are cracks where the air bag resides & this is a safety issue. Please help us!!!
