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.

Vehicle struck highway 99 center guard rail (at a 45 degree angle) on passenger front bumper traveling approximately 65 miles per hour (spin) then reversed spin slamming rear bumper of vehicle into same guard rail. Vehicle has front (driver and passenger) and side airbags, not one airbag deployed. According to the vehicle safety features, the front airbags should have deployed.

I just purchased my 2007 Scion Tc five days ago. And last night (day 4) as I went to manually lift up the trunk from the handle area the whole area popped off car! I was not using excessive force of any kind. I know the vehicle was not like this prior because I had just been to the grocery store the previous night. Luckily I was just leaving my parents house when this happened so I was able to quick fix it with some clear packaging tape. But now it looks very tacky and cheap. Since I live in las vegas, nv. I don't think that this will be an adequate long term solution because of the extreme temperature changes & rains.

Driving 45 mph at night, heard a loud crack, pulled over and found the wind deflector had shattered(seems like it was struck by a small rock?). fragments of deflector glass were missing, but thankfully it doesn't seem like any cars behind were hit with the fragments. Took it to the dealership after a week when being ignored by email and phone, both sent me in a loop(parts dept tells me it's cover under warranty and sends me to service dept, service dept said it is not cover in the warranty and sends me back to the parts dept), they were trying to ignored the issue, and didn't bother to try and help fix the failure. Said the recall affected 05-06 models only so any similar issues with 07 is not covered. Called a 2nd dealership about costs estimates, same loop. It was very difficult to get hold of the information to fix this, eg. Parts and labor cost.
