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 contact owns a 2009 Toyota Land cruiser. While driving approximately 65 mph, the vehicle suddenly surged forward. The vehicle would not stop until the contact applied great pressure to the brakes and pulled the accelerator pedal up with his foot. The failure occurred twice. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that the floor mats were the cause of the failure. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 6,000 and the current mileage was approximately 40,000. The VIN was unavailable.

The contact owns a 2009 Toyota Land cruiser. Upon starting the vehicle, there was an unusual increase in engine rpms. The engine was louder than normal and the contact immediately shut off the engine. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for further inspection. The contact confirmed that there were previous instances where the vehicle abnormally accelerated without driver intent. No repairs were made to the vehicle. The failure mileage was 1,200 and the current mileage was 3,000.

I, members of my family and business associates have experienced a sticking accelerator on numerous occasions on my 2009 Toyota landcruiser. This was not due to the floor mats. I took the vehicle to the Toyota dealer, joe machens, in columbia Missouri complaining about the problem. They stated nothing was wrong with the vehicle on several occasions. I requested they escalate the problem to their regional division who stated that I was the only one making this complaint. Clearly, I was not the only one with this problem. I called Toyota customer service and issued the same complaint and while they documented my call, did not offer any solutions. There are service documents of my issue with the Toyota dealer. This problem occurs at random times, without warning, at all different levels of speed. It is quite frankly, scary. I have tried to lift up the accelerator to see if it was "stuck". the accelerator would move but it won't make a difference on the speed of the vehicle. I firmly believe the problem is electronic. Please understand I am a big fan of the landcruiser line from Toyota. I have a 92 lnadcruiser which has 250,000 miles on it. However, please, please, please add the 09 landcruiser to the recall list before it hurts or injuries me or someone else.
