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.

: the contact stated while driving various speeds downhill with the cruise control activated, the vehicle accelerated without warning. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer who determined that was the way the cruise control was designed to function. The dealer instructed the contact to disengage the cruise control while descending downhill. The manufacturer was alerted. Updated 9/13/2006 - the cruise control was set at 58 mph but while driving downhill the vehicle accelerated to 77 mph
