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.

1998 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

I have a 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup. Today October 14, 2010 I was driving on a surface street and my gas pedal dropped to the floor as I was driving. The engine revved up to extremely high RPM's. I tried to stop, but my new brakes were barely able to slow me down. I had to put the engine into neutral and park the truck. A friend and I looked the engine over and we found that there was about two inches of play in the accelerator cable were the cable meets the engine. Which would explain why I was having such poor performance problems with the engine. Is this covered by any recalls? thank you
