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 vehicle accelerates when I am coming to a stop;this has happened about 5-6 times. On May 23, 09 I was almost stopped in a parking place and the car started bucking against my application of the brake and it was about 30 yards before the vehicle struck another vehicle and stopped. On Feb.13 of this year I was stopping at a stop sign and the vehicle again started accelerating. Placing the gear into neutral saved another crash. The speed of the vehicle at the time of the incidents has been only about 2 mph. I know that "others" like to claim confusion, driver error, etc. I am absolutely certain that such has not been the case and I have a passenger witness to these incidents and what I did the vehicle simply overpowers my attempts to brake and bucks like a wild horse.. I have had the vehicle examined by several garages and they say that w/O the ability to recreate the incident a diagnosis cannot be made. The incident 5- 29-09 did result in damages. Newport beach police were called. The Feb 13 2210 incident did not result in damages (unless you are including being terrified of a crash).
