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.

(see seattle police) Inc.# [xxx]) I was crossing dexter ave. N. to make a left turn at crockett St. Immediately I struck a Ford Explorer going N/B on dexter which had just pulled from the curb about 100' away. My car sustained front end damage and was declared a total wreck. The right front of the Explorer sustained unknown damage which was repaired. I sustained four broken ribs and chest injuries (hospital costs $18K+. concerned about safety, I purchased the small car primarily because I was told it had 11 air bags and would be safe in an accident. No airbags deployed in the accident. My injuries were sustained from the steering wheel. I think the car was poorly built and I was misinformed about the safety of my car. In my estimation the who vehicles involved in the accident traveled a combined distance of only 100-150 feet before impact. Toyota has sent me a copy of the data download from the Iq, but, not being an engineer, I don't understand it.
