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.

I wish to report two separate gas pedal incidents involving my 2009 Toyota Sienna xle van that occurred on the same day. On this day, I made a trip from my residence to a local golf course and about 3 hours later I returned to my residence. On my way to the golf course, I was traveling in a housing area at about 20 mph when I took my foot off of the gas pedal to slow down but the car continued at the same or slightly faster speed of about 25 mph. The car should have easily slowed down because at this time I was going up a slight incline in the road. I had to firmly apply my brakes to slow down the car and I immediately parked the car within about 200-300 yards of the incident. About 3 hours later, I drove the car back to my residence. I stopped at a stop sign and then started to drive to our residence (we have a rented unit in a gated residential area) at the posted speed of 15 mph. As I reached 15 mph, I took my foot off the accelerator but the car continued to speed up to about 25 mph. I had to immediately apply the brakes and I also downshifted the transmission to 1st gear. I parked the car but did notice, before I turned the key off, that the engine rpms in the stopped position were about 1000 to 1100. It was not at the idle speed of about 700 rpms where it should have been when stopped. Something prevented the accelerator from returning to normal. These two events both occurred on Saturday March 6, 2010. I took the car to the Toyota of the desert dealership in cathedral city, California, on Monday March 8, 2010. They checked the car over and told me that they could not find anything wrong. We also took a test drive which was equally uneventful. My wife and I are extremely concerned about our safety when driving this car. Why is there no recall of our Toyota Sienna? we darn sure have a problem!
