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.

While pulling into my driveway my accelerator suddenly surged forward into a brick plantar box, I was able to stop the vehicle with the brakes and emergency hand brake, although the gas pedal has always been sensitive the surge of acceleration has not been this excessive until now. Toyota states there has not been any claims on this vehicle...

I have a rs 7.0 which has the body kit. Very often, when I turn, especially if there is a passenger or extra weight in the car, it sounds as though the front wheels are scraping against the body of the car. Of course, the dealer can't hear the sound at all. But that is what I expected. I just hope that when the tire blows because of wear, I don't get killed. The car is almost three months old and this has been happening since I bought it.
