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.

While pulling into a parking space at the park, as I took my foot off the brake, the car surged forward as if I had pushed the gas pedal. My foot never touched the gas pedal. The car ran over the parking stopper and the sidewalk onto the soccer field fence. Luckily, no one was hurt.

Nissan Altima hybrid suddenly acceleration. I was going slow pulling into a parking stall when my car "jumped" and suddenly went forward crashing into the railing. There was a witness that saw me pulling into the parking stall slowly when my car "jumped" crashing through the railing.

I bought my 2009 Nissan Altima hybrid on July 30, 2009. On October 3rd, evening, it lost power while I was driving on freeway 99 California. Dash board light are on, engine has no power output. The vehicle dropped speed quickly. I pulled over to the shoulder and turn off the engine. One minute later, I turned engine on again. It backed to work. However, the same thing happened three more times again later in one week. It made me really think about the safety of driving it. On Oct 7,2009, the engine completely cannot be started anymore and it was towed to dealership in the morning for a full check up and did not find anything wrong. The technician said they checked all the wires and re-wired all the connection cords. It back to work and work alright now. After about 5000 miles driving, it seems there are no same problems appeared. But lose power without any reason on freeway is too dangerous to driver and passengers, I hope the manufacturer can find the real problems and avoid it's happenings in all vehicles.
