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.

Brake pedal and acelerator pedal are to close together and on the same plane.twice, the car developed a run away condition when I applied the brakes, I was pushing on the brakes and hitting the acelerator at the same time.the rear tires were burning rubber.had to put the car in neutral to stop the car.brought this problem to the attention of the dealer to no avail. Just don`T trust this vehicle any more. Nlm

Adjustable brake pedal is way too close to gas pedal when brake pedal is all the way down. Contacted dealer, and the dealer wasnot willing to do anything.
