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.

I was stopped at a bank drive up window, with my foot on the brake and as I put the vehicle in park the engine surged up to about 6900 RPM. I have had this happen to me about 4 or 5 times that the engine has surged as I have stopped. I have taken the vehicle to Toyota repair and been told that the vehicle computer does not indicate that there is a problem. I have been able so far to maintain control the vehicle, but this has happened too many times for it not to be reported.

My wife and I were going out of our 60 foot driveway. We were going forward as I always back into the driveway. I applied the accelerator a little to get the car to the end of the driveway. I applied the brake and held it down so I could look for traffic. As I held down on the brake, the engine started to "race" as if someone was pushing the accelerator to the floor. The brakes held. I turned off the motor, calmed down and restarted the engine- no motor "rush." Thank the lord this happened in our driveway. Had this happened on the highway, we could have killed someone or gotten killed ourselves. My first thought was of all those recalls because of unintended acceleration. My second thought was, "when will this happen again?"
