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.

Marauder 8-cyl

: the contact stated that the vehicle accelerated while braking during good weather and normal braking conditions. There was sporadic failure and the problem occurred three times. The dealer checked the pedal spacing and there were no problems found but according to the dealer, the problem may be that the contact was pressing the pedal and the brakes at the same time. The brakes are 4-wheel antilock.
