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.

I received notification from Toyota some months ago of a floormat/accelerator problem indicating they would contact me when a solution was available. It has now been months with no word. Recently, I contacted them only to get a response concerning a 2010 Prius braking problem. My vehicle is a 2006 Prius.

While driving my Prius I have experienced brief moments of unexplained acceleration. It was startling when it happened but was also over quickly. I believe it has happened twice. Once was about one week after I had taken the car in for maintenance. I can remember thinking I might have to take the car in again. It felt like the acceleration when using cruise control, however, I don't and wasn't using cruise control. I have only the floor mats that came with the vehicle and do not believe this was caused by the floor mat.
