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.

Unintended acceleration - at very low speed, with foot on brake, engine revved and car surged. This has now occurred three times.

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...

Returned accelerator problem to dealer was told they would test drive it to try to duplicate the sticking. Then would contact Toyota "to see what Toyota wanted to do about it". I feel Toyota should be forced O buy back all of the vehicles they sold which are clearly potential death traps. Toyota tells me there is no electronic problem, while at the same time admitting they have no idea whatsoever what is causing sticky gas pedals. Their franchise to build and distribute vehicles in this country should be taken away, I don't care how many billions of dollars they lose.
