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.

There was no incident with the car. I purchased the car new and when driving it I detected a potential safety hazard with the positions of the brake and gas pedals and their relationship are too close to each other. For example if your are wearing men's tennis shoes their is a hazard of touching both the brake and gas when you want to apply the brake you also apply the gas. Simply because the shoes are too wide. The dimensions are: The brake pedal is 5" X 3" and the gas pedal is 2" wide and 6" long. The separation between the two pedals is 2 inches. The gas pedal is 1 inch from the center wall on the right and the brake pedal is 10 inches from the left wall. I don't if these tolerances are acceptable only dot would know.
