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.

2006 Scion tC Owner Comments

problem #4

Nov 072006


  • miles


I was in a severe collision is Nov 2006 (in palmdale, ca) in my 2006 Scion Tc. The car was approx. 3 months old. During the collision my car rolled over an embankment "head over heals" and then sideways before resting upside down. None of the airbags deployed. I hit my head on the steering wheel (luckily I was ok). The front end of the car suffered the most damage. I notified Toyota and they told me that they didn't see an issue and did nothing about my complaint (except block my access to my account on their website).

  • 15,478 miles
On March 3rd year 2007 at 3:00 am I was in a car accident where my car was hit in the front end by at least 25 metal poles that hold up three guide wires at 65 miles an hour due to a tire blowout totaling my car. The complaint is that the air bags did not deploy on impact seeing as my front end and undercarriage was demolished right near the airbag sensor.
