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.

This is basically why I am concerned: I found that if you go to lock/unlock your car with a Toyota/Scion smart key while someone within range of your car holds the lock/unlock button on their Toyota/Scion smart key, your car will not respond to your own key. Their signal basically just interferes with your signal causing the car to do nothing. If you walk away w/O noticing, your car will be completely defenseless. No lock. No alarm. In my test, I held my key button about 60 feet away from my dads car and it interfered with his key causing his car not to lock. This also worked vice-versa. This means thieves have the ability to stake out a parking lot, for example, and, just by holding a button on their key, will be able to gain access to the cars of unsuspecting civilians. This is a flaw that should be addressed.
