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.

As I'm holding the brakes at a stop, my car will randomly rev and accelerate without the gas pedal being pushed. someone had suggested to me to check and see if the brakes are snagging on the throttle cable. so i checked and that isn't the problem. for now I'm stuck putting the car in neutral while at a stop but i would like to know why this is happening and what can be done to fix it.
