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.

I was driving my 2005 Scion Xb to my office. As I slowed down and turned into a parking space when I applied the brakes the engine accelerated to 3000 rpms jumped the curb and ran into the back of the building. When I reported these facts to a Toyota dealer they said they have never heard of a car doing that and it must have been a mistake on my part. Since the repair of the car in a period of two years the engine has done this four other times the repair people say they can't fix it unless it happens when they are working on the car. I believe the problem is in the electronic controls for the accelerator. I get no response from Toyota.
