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.

Since I bought the car, I noticed on motion the force on the pedal started reducing. When it happens I repress it again which will become stable at that particular time. Will got stuck while in motion( 55mpr). I took to the dealership they told me nothing wrong with the car, and then I was under warranty. This morning I took it to mechanic, they told me it's electrical problem with throttle pedal and seat.

Traction control warning light came on. Investigated and wires from the sensor was ripped. Mechanic soldered wires back together. Starting to flicker and disable traction control when wheel is fully turned. Causes ABS system to engage when not needed. Can cause accident due to increased stopping distance.
