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.

While stopped in drive at a stop sign with foot on brake, on corner of city street engine revved very high and car tried to surge forward. Applied brake even harder, put car in neutral and stopped engine. Tried to start up and same thing happened. On third try, engine seemed normal, but "check engine light" was on. Drove 100 yards to home garage and had car flat-bedded to dealer.
