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.

2002 Toyota Corolla le acceleration pedal: --occasionally, but rarely, appears to stick momentarily (a sensation like a spring that has temporarily stuck and then sprung loose). I took it into my Toyota dealer but they said there was nothing wrong that they could detect. Therefore nothing has been done to correct the mystery. The sticking/springing sensation still occasionally occurs but it is very hard to predict when it will. --it seems to happen shortly after starting up. I am concerned because I do not want the acceleration problems that have occurred with other Toyota. The date of the first incident, listed below (Mar 5, 2002), is approximate. The vehicle was purchased Oct. 2001.

My 2002 Toyota Corolla accelerated out of control while I was driving it a few years ago. The pedal was not stuck, the cruise control was not on. I called Toyota to complain and they said it was an isolated incident, and was not covered under any warranty. My mechanic never found the cause of the problem but I have lived in fear that it would happen again. I have heard that many other Toyota and Lexus owners had the same problem and Toyota is blaming it on faulty floor mats. This is patently false and they are trying to cover up a manufacturing defect. I was almost killed and other drivers apparently weren't as lucky as I was to get off the road safely. I emailed Toyota recently and received no response other than an automated notice of receiving my email. Please let me know of any recourse I have in this matter.
