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 gas pedal stuck while driving, the car would only idle and not move. The car was in traffic and almost hit by another vehicle. On a prior date the gas pedal stuck and would not move, car just idled in a parking lot for about five minutes. This wasn't first time it stuck, but prior times it always released right away.

The problem is with the gas pedal, its hard to press/accelerate and sometimes when I press/accelerate from a stop and at speeds of 30 mph, it gets stuck and I have to put it in neutral. Very dangerous situation.
