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.

The vehicle accelerated on its own when coming to a stop at a light. The transmission was completely overriden and it did not make any diference if the car was put in park or reverse, the car still was bucking forward. It stopped when the ignition was killed. This was the second time it happened and the most severe case. The first time it only started to rev but did come to a stop at the light. The incidents were approximately 2-3 weeks apart.
