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.

2001 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

Car rapidly accelerated without my foot on the gas pedal and did not slow down until my foot hit the brake. Brought the vehicle to mcgee Toyota and they replaced the gas pedal. It was a $600.+ repair. Within the year the news reported abnormal acceleration with the Prius line and I quickly contacted Toyota management. They denied my claim saying that these incidences were as a result of floor mats? I reported it to [xxx](MA) representative for consumer protection and have not received a response (this was over two years ago). I recently heard about your Agency and decided to file a report. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
