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.

2007 Scion tC Owner Comments

I had someone run into the side of me when I took my vehicle into be repaired the body shop told me I had an extremely dangerous situation where the hood needs replaced. The body shop called it a striker. It has come unwelded from the actual hood. Unfortunately I do not have the money to replace the hood. I have checked online and found several complaints about this same situation. I believe Scion needs to fix this issue as it could result in a major crash if the hood were to fly up or off and I would kill myself or someone else. I have taken my vehicle in on schedule for maintenance and never was this mentioned to me.
