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.

problem #2

  • 14,500 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Toyota Tacoma. The contact stated that she received a recall notice in reference to NHTSA campaign id number(09V388000-vehicle speed control:accelerator pedal). After getting the recall repairs done she was unsatisfied because the floor mats do not fit comfortable and her foot slips off of the accelerator pedal. She also states that she would like for them to reverse the remedy due to the problem that she experienced at the time. The manufacturer was contacted and they informed her that the government will not allow them to reverse the remedy. The failure mileage was approximately 14,500.
