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 accelerator stuck, and consumer was not able to stop the vehicle. Consumer left the vehicle, and contacted the manufacturer. They had the vehicle towed, supposedly repaired, but consumer was not satisfied. Because consumer have no brakebrakes he had to use the emergency brake which slowed the car down enough to put it in park while moving, then he shut off the ignition. This vehicle came with no clips on the kick panel.
