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.

took foot off the gas pedal, car wouldn't slow down

t was exiting the freeway and after removing my foot from the accelerator I noticed the vehicle was not slowing down. I pressed on the brakes and was able to slow the car, luckily the light ahead was green so I went through and was able to go up the approaching hill without pressing the accelerator. I had to press the brakes as hard as possible to come to a stop where the RPM's registered 4000. After turning the vehicle off I started it again and the engine raced so I shut it down. Will have to tow it to a mechanic. This is very dangerous.
