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.

Since purchasing my 2009 Corolla I had to have a belt change, I had an issue with the accelerator pedal they stated was my floor mat, and then my accelerator pedal would stick. The problem with the accelerator pedal would include times of low acceleration to the pedal sticking in the depressed position even if my foot was off the accelerator. In addition, since the snow is greater this year giving me a better idea how it handles in the snow I have encountered a dangerous problem that scares me. I wrote to Toyota about it on 2/24/10 and today 2/26/10. Below is my last E-mail to them. "driving in the snow 2/25/10 I encountered several times when the traction control kicked in and I had power loss to the vehicle. It happened even on the highways. The car would slow to almost a stop. I pressed and pressed on the accelerator picking up my foot and putting down at times to see if it would help but it would continue to slow or have total power loss where I could not go. It was as if I had no power to the accelerator. The pedal was limp. It is very dangerous, especially on a highway! driving and having the car then slow or stop or almost stop to where I can't go is dangerous, please help!!!!! again, in the drop down menu below for the sub-type of vehicle Corolla is not listed as a category. My car is a 2009 Corolla". the date selected below as incident date: I selected the incident date as the date of the last time the incident occurred even though the problem has also occurred before this date.
