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.

Driving on city street at about 30-35 mph. As I approached intersection I took foot off accelerator pedal and stepped on brake pedal to slow down and stop at intersection. As I stepped on brake pedal, I could hear engine start accelerating and car wouldn't stop. I noticed tach reading between 4 and 5. although engine was accelerating and vehicle was moving forward it was not moving at excessive speed. I pressed harder on brake pedal and while car slowed somewhat it would not stop. So I decided that the only way to stop vehicle was to move gear shift lever to park and then turn off engine. I then restarted car and it functioned normally. My experience might be an example of what has been called "sudden, unintended acceleration".
