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.

  • 2,200 miles


Twice my car unexpectedly accelerated. The first time, my car was in reverse, and my foot was on the brake. The engine suddenly revved. I put the car in park and turned it off. The second time, I was in drive with my foot on the brake. The engine suddenly revved. I put the car in park and turned it off. Neither time did my car move. I took the car to the dealership. They found nothing wrong. Because I no longer felt safe, I sold the car back to the dealership. The car had approximately 2,200 miles on it. The car cost about $18,000. The dealer bought it back for $12,000.
