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 the accelerator pedal are too close. Also, height of brake pedal and accelerator pedal are the same which caused pedal misapplication.

Design problem; the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal are the same height. If driver has part of foot on the brake pedal he steps on the accelerator pedal at the same time. Driver was involved in a crash on June 1, 1988 because of problem.
