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.

The rear hatch is poorly designed and has broken off under normal wear and tear. This is a known issue with this model vehicle and should be covered.

While driving at highway speeds (65 mph), I heard a loud "pop" followed by glass raining down around me. I pulled over and examined my car to find the perimeter of the sunroof entirely missing and the interior portion of the sunroof shattered. There were large chunks of glass inside the car along with pieces of metal. The sunroof was open at the time. The temperature was in the low 70S. There were no overpasses nor were there any trucks around me. There was no impact mark on the glass to indicate road debris.

After opening the trunk of my 2007 Toyota Scion Tc multiple times it gave in and broke off. The wires for the trunk are still attached and functioning but the foot long plastic piece was dangling from my car. My temporary fix is duct tape, which isn't very appealing. I have had it come un-done a few times because the duct tape doesn't hold for very long. I went to a Toyota dealership, who were going to order the piece for my car but they never called me back to tell me if the part came in or not so I decided, why bother, if they don't want my business.

I woke up this morning and saw my glass wind deflector shattered into many pieces. Im worried that if I open it, glass will fall on over me. I brought it to the dealership and they said a little rock hit it which caused it to shattered. They wanted to charge me over $400. But if I get it fixed, it will be likely to happen again. The previous model had a recalled with the same problem and it was being fixed for free. How come are they trying to charge me? the laminated tape doesn't go across the whole glass wind deflector. The laminated tape doesn't prevent the glass from cracking so therefore it will happen again and if I was driving while it was up. I'm more likely to get injured.
