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

While driving on the Florida turnpike, my Scion Tc 2007 violently swerved left hitting the center divider. This caused the car to bank off the center divider and proceed with a 180% turn across the turnpike ending in the slow lane facing oncoming traffic. From there a motorcycle hit and totaled the Scion vehicle. Upon exiting the car I noticed that the tie rod which allowed the wheel to be controlled by the steering wheel had popped off, causing the accident. The car remains with the insurance company awaiting a more detailed inspection.
