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.

I approached the main intersection in my 2010 Camry from a side street at a stop sign. When I put my foot on the brake the car continued to accelerate into the main intersection. I collided with an oncoming car causing approx. $3400. There were no injuries and the damage to the front of the car was repaired. Only the body damage was corrected on the vehicle. No internal repairs have been made as of yet.

11/24/09 I was driving my 2010 Camry in a parking lot. My children were in the back seat. I was traveling 10 mph. My right foot was not on the gas, nor the brake, the torque of the engine was sufficient for moving us along while looking for a parking space. My right foot was above the brake as I was slowly looking for a parking spot. Suddenly, I heard a very loud vvrrooommmm and the car spontaneously accelerated and lunged forward approximately 20 feet. Thankfully, I was able to brake quickly and stopped the car. I then took it to the dealership. Conicelli ran a diagnostic on my car. Later that day when I picked up the car, they said they found nothing. When I asked them where the "spontaneous acceleration" (a problem Toyota earlier in the day told me they were having) would have appeared on the diagnostic, they were at a loss. Let me be very clear that there was not a floor mat in the driver's side. I do not believe the "spontaneous acceleration" was caused by the "mat issue." I know my experience was real and not caused by driver error. I feel the problem is elsewhere and exacerbated for some drivers because they had the floor mats in place. Please press Toyota to get to the bottom of this issue. I no longer feel safe in my 2010 Toyota Camry that I bought for safety reasons in the first place. Thank you.
