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.

The contact owns a 2002 RX300 Lexus. While driving 55 mph on a hill, the vehicle accelerated on its own and the pedal was stuck to the floor. She was only able to stop the vehicle after shifting into neutral gear. The contact shut the engine off and attempted to exit the vehicle; however, the doors failed to open until she restarted the vehicle. There was a loud noise present in the engine after restarting the vehicle; however, the vehicle began moving in reverse. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where the vehicle was purchased. The diagnostic computer test indicated that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle.
