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.

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • 535 miles


New 08 Toyota Tacoma less than 1,000 miles. Stopped in a parking lot with foot on brake. Sudden uncontrolled acceleration. Thought another car had hit our new Toyota truck from behind and was pushing our truck. Had brake pedal pushed as far as it would go, our truck accelerated unit our truck hit another car then turned the ignition off to get our truck to stop. Mats were clip in and a good 4 to 5 inches from pedal. Two people in the truck at the time of the accident.

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,590 miles
2008 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck- I was wearing a pair of steel tip workboots when I was pulling into a parking space at a convenience store. I hit the brake but the brake pedal when actuated is closer to the floor than the top part of the gas pedal. With steel tip work boots being worn which are wider than street shoes I actuated the brake and gas pedal at the same time. The truck shot forward in the parking spot and hit a tubular pylon filled with concrete. This is the only thing that kept the vehicle from crashing into a person or building. Damage to vehicle has been estimated @ $ $1,170.
