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 #1

Floor mat flips up over clutch and brake pedal sometimes when shifting gears. Can cause accidental brake application when shifting gears. Eyelet securing mat to floor separates from mat after a few months of usage. Allows floor mat to shift forward and the front edge of the mat catches the clutch pedal. When the pedal is depressed, the mat catches the pedal and flips up over the brake and clutch pedal. Pressing the clutch again will also engage brake. When operating vehicle on Feb 25, 2010, two times the brakes applied when shifting gears due to the mat interference. The second time the vehicle skidded out of a turn and damaged the front right wheel and tire when hitting a curb. The mat was removed to prevent further problems. Vehicle was inoperable after incident.
