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.

Sudden acceleration. Vehicle was stopped, with foot on brake, when sudden acceleration occurred very rapidly. Brake pressure could not keep vehicle from lurching foward and hitting the rear a of stopped vehicle. I never use my left foot on the brake, so I can never hit the brake and accelerator simultaneously.

Our 2006 Toyota Highlander hybrid would not start on several occasions. The car had been running for some time, turned off for 5 minutes and then it would not restart. After sitting for a few hours it restarted. Some times it had to be jumped and the code read "shift to park" even though it was already in park. I took it in and everything checked out and of course they said that they never heard of this happening before.
