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.

Many times, either after a stop or letting my foot off the gas pedal and then trying to push the gas pedal again, the pedal would not move, and I could no longer accelarate and have been forced a few times to pull off to the side of the road until I could get it to press down. Sometimes waiting for 5+ minutes for it to work. I had someone look at it, it's the throttle body. It gets build up in it and can't compress, seems to be worse in the cooler weather (vs summer). This is a very dangerous, especially with traffice around, and I have had my kids in the car when its happened and I get nervous it'll happen in a situation that I can't prevent an accident. I have never had a problem with a throttle on any of my other cars, nor have I known anyone with this issue.

Stop at a red light the fuel peddle got stuck would not accelerate. Finally the Mariner started moving then had to come to a stop for stop sign same thing happened. Took it to the shop said the "throttle" was broken on this. This is a very dangerous can't drive it with the throttle being broken. Never had a problem with a throttle on any of my pass cars.
