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 was in the process of merging onto the Ohio turnpike and depressed the gas pedal to accelerate and pass a slow-moving semi in front of me. The car accelerated and once past the semi I released pressure on the gas pedal only to have the car continue to accelerate. Despite pressing the brake the vehicle did not slow. As I prepared to shift into neutral gear I reached down and pulled the floor mat to the diagonal corner opposite the gas pedal. With that action the pedal appeared to become responsive to pressure and the car decelerated. A rear seat passenger observed a warning light appear on the instrument panel indicating a master system warning. The light disappeared as soon as the vehicle began to slow. No other actions occurred following the incident.

I accelerated to make a lane change, vehicle took off to increasing acceleration I attempted to brake car would not respond. Luckily no traffic was ahead of me. Finally car managed to stop. I didn't think it would. I had to practically stand on brake pedal. I was assuming some how the cruise control was inadvertently pressed but no it was not.
