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.

2008 Scion xB Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 302009


  • 31,688 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Scion Xb. The contact started the ignition and applied pressure to the brake pedal, followed by an unintended forceful acceleration. The driver side floor mat was underneath the brake pedal, and it covered the accelerator pedal surface. The engine was turned off immediately. The failure was contributed to a floor mat clip that disengaged from the floor which resulted in the movement of the mat. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnostic testing. The VIN was rejected from the system. The vehicle was inspected by the manufacturer's engineer who replaced the floor mat clip. The failure mileage was 31,688.
