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.

2007 Toyota Rav4. Accelerator stuck twice in one month period. Driver able to stop safely both times. Problem reported to Toyota corporate care. They sent a representative who could not duplicate the problem and Toyota refused to authorize any repairs. Vehicle owner, fearing additional problems, had the accelerator pedal replaced at customers expense. Old accelerator pedal available. As the consumers wife was accelerating up a hill, the accelerator pedal became stuck. It did not continue to accelerate, but would not return to idle when she released her foot from the pedal. She had to force the brake pedal down. The consumer then turned off the vehicle and re-started it again and everything went back to normal operation. Updated IVOQ 08/12/10
