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.

problem #2

LS 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,000 miles


: the contact stated while applying brake pressure, the accelerator pedal was also pushed which caused the vehicle to lurch forward and strike another vehicle from behind at 45mph. Although there was a crash, no one was injured. The vehicle sustained minor damage. The police were on the scene and a report was taken. The vehicle was towed to the local dealer. The dealer determined the placement of the brake and accelerator pedals were accurate and suggested the crash was not due to any defect. The dealer could not duplicate the problem, no repairs were made concerning the brake and accelerator pedals.

The accelerator pedal was too close to the brake pedal which made it difficult to drive at times..
