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.

accelerator pedal no going back to idle

Doing errands the other day and I noticed that the brakes were getting less effective over time, increasing stopping distance and just feeling off. When I got home and tried to turn into my driveway, I pressed the brake all the way to the floor and still managed to coast past the turn, never even getting the car to a full stop. While crossing from the neighbor's driveway to mine and continuing down it, I had the brake to the floor the whole time, yet was still moving at idle speed. To my surprise, when I lifted my foot from the brake, the car sped up, a lot, and I came to the conclusion that my accelerator pedal was sticking, and had been steadily getting worse over the course of the drive. Pulling the emergency brake to park, I turned off the car and checked the pedal with my hand. The accelerator would depress an inch or so and stay, instead of springing back up. I do not know how to reproduce this, and it appears to be back to normal today from a physical standpoint, though I'm hesitant to drive it.
