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.

Tundra 8-cyl

  • 1,970 miles
I was driving my 212 Tundra crewmax and when I reached a traffic light--red, I pressed the brakes and the truck started to pull up and the RPM's went high. Even when I pressed the brakes real hard it was still moving forward. I prompted to put the transmission in park and turned the engine off. Restarted it and shifted into drive, the truck pulled up real fast because the RPM's were high, but in about two or three seconds went to normal. Scared and very careful I drove it home, didn't do it anymore but I contacted my dealer's customers relations manager and he got tow it away from my home for its checkup. According to them, came up with nothing wrong with it and it is safe to drive. They said that they've hooked up a computer to it and the truck's computer did not register anything wrong or malfunction whatsoever. But it did happened. It wasn't my imagination and my concern is that it may happens again and I might not be able to control it or turn it off as I did this time. I might not be that lucky again and hurt myself or someone else. Might not be at a traffic light in red. And might even cause someone's death, or mine.
