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 contact owns a 2008 Nissan Altima. The contact stated the accelerator pedal was stuck in the up position while depressing the pedal, the vehicle failed to move. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where they performed a diagnostic test but could not duplicate the failure. They also reprogrammed the computer but the problem continued. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure mileage was 10,000. The dealer replaced the throttle lever assembly. Updated 11/05/10 the consumer stated as he backed out of the driveway, he then put the gear in drive and the vehicle would not move beyond 5 mph. After about 100 feet of a slow roll and trying to engage the accelerator, it caught with a lurch. According to the dealer, the transmission was overfilled with fluid, which caused the vehicle to shut down. Updated 12/22/10
