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.

Two instances of runaway acceleration within the first month I owned my 2007 Prius (October - November 2006) poo pooed by the dealer. Said they knew nothing about any such problem. Googled it and it was all over the net even then. Still blaming it on the floor mats which they sold to me specifically for my car that were included in the purchase price. Glad this is now getting media attention.

This is not one incident, it happens whenever the road is slick (rain, or even sprinkler runoff!) or if I drive over a pothole--the power to the wheels is cut and the engine feels like it is going to stall. It is extremely difficult and nervewracking to drive while it is raining. The most dangerous times that this happens is when I am at a signal, making a right turn I need power to the engine to merge into traffic, and make sure that oncoming traffic is not interrupted. There have been times that I feel like my car won't "go" or hesitates when I need it to go! and if it's this bad in wet conditions, I would never even consider driving the Prius in snowy conditions. I have read that this is all due to a problem in the traction control system. Very unsafe!!

My 2007 Prius has the exact brake failure described in the news reports of the past few days. When I approach a stop sign on a rough road and apply the brakes, there are no brakes for a brief interval. I have not had an accident but a few close calls. I think the investigation should be expanded to all model years, not just the 2010 Prius. I thought maybe it was just an ABS issue but I had another car with ABS and never had this interval of no brakes.
