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.

Was leaving the house, got in car, started engine, put my foot on the brake then put the gear shift into reverse and proceeded to pull out of garage when all of a sudden for no reason whatsoever the car just took off on its own too fast, while my foot was still on the brake, the car accelerated too quickly and I nearly crashed into the neighbor's garage door.

In cold temperatures the brake pedal freezes and you can not push the pedal. The car does not respond. Seems to act in exactly the same way that the recall for the 2008-09 models!

The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Scion Xb. The contact stated that while attempting to park the vehicle, the brake pedal became detached from its assembly. As a result, the contact erroneously engaged the accelerator pedal instead of the brake pedal and crashed into a tree. A police report was not filed and no injuries were reported. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the technician was unable to diagnose the failure however, proceeded to reinstall the pedal. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and sent an engineer to inspect the vehicle. The engineer advised that the vehicle was performing up to standards and did not provide any additional assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 124,791 and the current mileage was 145,000.
