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.

Backlight for clock and heating and air controls intermittently went on and off, and eventually off altogether. Appears to be an issue with majority of early '07 Scion Tc's, yet no recall or tsb"?" dealer wants to charge to fix, should be warranty issue.
