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.

problem #1

Jan 172006


  • Manual transmission
  • 300 miles
I was exiting the freeway after traveling 65 mph for approximately 15 minutes. As I coasted up the exit ramp w/clutch in and foot off the gas the car revved to over 3000 rpms. By the time I stopped at the light at the end of the ramp by using the brake the car returned to idle after a second or two.
