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.

On Sunday, September 6, 2009, my mother was driving my 2006 Toyota Avalon when she was involved in a crash due to an acceleration problem with the vehicle. She was also involved in a crash in my garage when the floor mat got stuck on the accelerator and cause her to run into the wall of the garage. I also have experienced several instances of acceleration after taking my foot off the gas pedal when attempting to brake which caused me to have to slam on the brakes to stop the vehicle. The insurance company deemed the car a total loss and it was only when I received the settlement papers from the insurance company did I find out there were problems with the airbags as Toyota never sent me any correspondence regarding the problem with the airbags, the floor mats or the accelerator.

My 2006 Toyota Avalon has been giving me problems with the floor mats and accelerator getting stuck for over two years and now the accelerator gets stuck on its own. I am afraid to drive it back and forth on the highway and hope that Toyota would replace it with a rental car until it can fix it.
