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 owns a 1998 Toyota 4runner. During deceleration, the vehicle stalls and accelerates both at the same time. The dealer replaced the idle switch valve twice, which corrected the failure for a few months. On August 21, 2008 while driving 40 mph, the vehicle shut down. The contact will take the vehicle to the dealer for a diagnosis. The failure mileage was 72,100 and current mileage was 90,000.
