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.

Grand Marquis

Avis rental car (car # 5102064) from denver int'L airport. (car registered # ayh296 ok) incident location: Lakewood, co 80401. Parking lot of private office. I coincidently backed out of parking slot as office worker backed out of hers. Rear bumpers tapped--non-event. On shift (auto. Transmission) into drive to move forward out of the way, the car rocketed unexpectedly seemingly at full-throttle, tires screeching. I slammed on the breaks. (5 yards between accelerating and breaking tire marks.) in those 5 yards the rental car struck the front end of the office's SUV (2000 Mercury Mountaineer), lifting and shoving it from its parking place over a concrete tire barrier and onto a grassed landscape area. SUV may be "totaled." Front and hood of rental car ('08 Mercury Grand Marquis) bashed in. Driver and passengers, belted, ok. Lakeland, co police were telephoned from the office. Personnel waited 2 hours, but they never came to the site.

We were involved in an automobile crash on June 22, 2008. We believe it was due to a defect we had previously reported. We were entering a parking lot when we could not stop the car from speeding up. We eventually hit the side of a building before we got stopped. We own a Mercury Grand Marquis 2008. I am afraid we will be killed or kill someone else. My husband could not get the vehicle to slow down, the brakes would not work.
