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.

2001 Mercedes C240. My wife was driving under normal conditions and the accelerator failed. The engine would go full throttle when in gear. She had to call a tow truck to have it towed to mechanic. He found the car computer had said the electronic accelerator was bad. A new accelerator was put in and no more problem.
