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 have not personally yet had an issue with this, but I image it is a problem for more than one person.... while driving the vehicle (2007 Toyota Tacoma), the shift stick does not require you to press the brake to put the vehicle in reverse, so, if by mistake the shift knob was bumped, knocked, or whatever, it could send the car in reverse (on the freeway"!"!) without the driver's consent. Not good...
