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.

Vehicle start button is in a unsafe location. Knee keeps hitting while driving and car turns off. It needs a cover or smarter switch so that a accidental touch cant shut the car off while driving. It's a severe hazard!!!!!!

Potentially faulty brake system or downshift cvt or simulated gearshift system. Details: When driving in slow moving traffic with the brakes partially applied, the vehicle tends to momentarily accelerate and speed up. Concurrently the resistance on the brake pedal tends to decrease, along with a visible down-and-then-back-up jumping of RPM needle. The brake pedal needs to be kept pressed to allow the vehicle to slow down. Took vehicle to dealership (new vehicle, with only 300 miles), the technician noticed the problem I had been explaining. The technician agreed to speak with the engineer the next day. However, next day the dealership stated that they have never encountered such as issue, and it may be simply the down-shift of the cvt transmission. This is unusual in comparison to any other car I have driven. Acceleration of the car during the braking cycle is clearly odd. Potentially dangerous situation when approaching a stop sign or slow traffic zones near schools. Please investigate.
