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.

2010 Toyota RAV4 Owner Comments

I was leaving my home in my 2010 Toyota Rav4. I put the car in reverse and it instantly began to accelerate at a very high speed. I immediately pressed down on the brakes as hard as I could. However nothing occurred the car continued to reverse rapidly. I shifted into neutral but it was a small space and by then I was near the stone fixture which the vehicle hit. The fixture which was solid stone was in the ground, it was uprooted by the vehicle. In order for an object like this to be uprooted a great deal of speed would need to be involved. My driveway is on an incline and I never press on the gas pedal while reversing as the vehicle will reverse on its own due to the inclination.
