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.

While parking my car, the motor suddenly accelerated without the accelerator pedal having been depressed. The car surged forward and even after the brake was applied the engine continued to accelerate for several seconds.

I'm not sure if the fuel/propulsion system is at fault; however, following is the problem I have experienced numerous times. When I tell Toyota service people about it, they don't seem concerned. When making a slow turn (usually left turn), it appears that I am about to stall - seems like there is not enough gas getting to system - or perhaps it is a transmission problem (geared down too low). I am a woman, so I don't know what the problem is. However, I have been scared numerous times. When this happens, I press the accelerator harder and I am always afraid the car is going to lurch forward too fast.

My wife was in a parking lot when the car suddenly accelerated on it's own she applied the brake without results. The car continued forward about 10 feet, and was stopped on impact by a picnic table and side of a building. She received a whiplash injury, recently diagnosed as herniated disks, and is currently under medical care.damage was confined to the grill and crumple zone in the front of the car.the insurance assessed the damage at $7,000, and has been repaired.
