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.

My 2006 Toyota Scion Tc has this very flimsy hatch back trunk handle(plastic) that broke. I have seen many same problem on the same model Tc on the road. So this is definitely a design problem and Toyota should fix this. Looking at how this system was put together, I can tell why this piece is not lasting.
