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.

Tranmission problems: I have been experiencing transmission hesitations which I do not expect in any Toyota products; another word, there are hang ups between gears, especially 1st to 2nd. This is extremely dangerous, especially in a busy and crazy houston traffic because the car does not give the sufficient acceleration when one needs it. That 1 or 2 second hesitation could cause an accident. To confirm this existing problem, I test drove the rx 330, highlander and Solara. It is even worse
