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.

There is a well known flaw with Toyota hybrids that Toyota needs to address and fix. When you brake to come to a stop, if they car encounters bumps or potholes, the brake pressure will momentarily decrease and the car will surge forward. It does not appear to affect certain vehicles, but rather all hybrids. It can lead to a pedestrian being hit or other accident. It is most disconcerting to feel the car lurch forward while braking to a stop. Please investigate and put pressure on Toyota to issue a recall and repair.
