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 #1

Jun 102007


  • 2,000 miles
Car sporadically looses power while attempting to suddenly accelerate after momentarily lifting foot off gas peddle. Most instances occur while changing lanes on the highway or attempting to make a normal left hand turn. Example: Going 60 mph, lift foot off peddle to slow down due to car in front of me, see opening in the lane to my right, turn wheel slightly to change lanes, floor it only to find I have no power with other car barreling down on me. This has happened over a dozen times but I am unable to duplicate it at will.
