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.

Once approaching a stop (crosswalk), the vehicle accelerated without touching the accelerator pedal. The owner of the vehicle almost hit a pedestrian. Another time, the vehicle lunged forward when attempting to move out of parking space. The dealership has the vehicle as of 01-28-2003 with cause not identified yet. The owner is concerned about the performance and repair of vehicle and the safety of those around if failure occurs again.
