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.

While waiting at a stop light behind traffic, my car suddenly surged. I was just sitting there with my foot on the brake. I thought someone had hit me from behind, but when I looked up there was no car behind me. Luckily, I did not hit the car in front of me and had pushed harder on the brake when I felt the surge. I did report this when I took my car in to be serviced, orr Toyota, searcy, Arkansas. They told me to tell them if this happens again. So far it has never happened again.
