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.

problem #1

I was driving into my carport and had put my foot on the brakes, the car slowed but then the accelerator went to the floor. The car accelerated so fast I did not have time to apply the brakes again. The car crashed through the brick wall, breaking brick, pulling brick from the floor foundation, and breaking the interior wall (you can see the 2 by 4's inside the wall). The car hit hard enough to do this amount of damage, but the air bag did not deploye. The car pushed a large chest freezer about 6 feet and into my washer. The freezer is broke. I lost all contents of the freezer. The louvered doors into the utility room will not open. The exterior wall is cracked around to the corner of the house and extends another 10-15 feet and ends under a window. The carport door frame is broke. My son almost didn't get the door to close to lock for the night. My daughter in law came and took pictures.
