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.

My 2016 Lexus 350 rx was in the garage. I needed to move the car forward so I put it in drive. As soon as I released the brake, the car shot forward with great speed (unintended acceleration). The car crashed into some bicycles and shelves as I applied the brakes to stop the vehicle. I immediately called Lexus of tampa bay and they came out to pick it up. That was almost 8 weeks and nothing has been resolved.

Brand new car. On freeway middle lane in rush hour and lost throttle. Luckilyi able to get off freeway and called tow truck and went to dealer. Told it is throttle. 2 month old car and 1500 miles. I am scared it suddenly stopped working and am glad I did not meet an accident but scared about this especially as new car. This is safety hazard. Car errors on panel when it failed said; engine, throttle, transmission, AWD and safety error
