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.

Wet floor board on drivers side due to a leaking HVAC. May cause slippery feet while operating vehicle. Also causing mildew and or rust. Seen lots and lots of discussion on net about this known problem. And they even have a bulletin on there website for the problem. But no recall?

I was pulling into an apartment parking lot at 3 miles per hour or less applied brake and car surged forward. I applied more pressure to brake and the car surged again and would not stop. This caused me to crash into a unoccupied parked car which banged another unoccupied car parked next to it. All 3 cars were damage. My car and the car I hit sustained front end damage. The third car was scraped along the driver side door and rear panel. There was a witness to this accident that told the responding California chp officer that he saw my car experience two surges as I slowly entered the parking. He also informed the office that he saw my break lights on before the first surge happened. Updated 02/24/16
