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 2008 Mazda Tribute. While traveling at 40 mph, the contact changed lanes to pass a vehicle but when he depressed the accelerator pedal to speed up, the pedal went to the floorboard and the vehicle stalled. The contact was able to restart the vehicle but the engine only raced up and down with no response from the accelerator pedal. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealership and the dealer stated that the air filter and fuel control module had burned out and caused the failure. The current and failure mileages were 25,185. Updated 07/22/10 updated 09/23/10 updated 09/24/10 the consumer no longer owns the vehicle. Updated 09/27/10
