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.

First, the rubber hatch release melted & dripped onto my rear bumper. (I suspect that faulty wiring of some sort kept the release somewhat engaged, which melted the rubber.) then the hatch latch/lock would only completely release after multiple attempts. Finally, after unlocking the hatch & engaging (I thought) the release, the entire panel pulled off the car, leaving it dangling by the wiring harness.

Defective trunk hatch handle, the handle broke on around November 2011, I strongly believe that it is manufacture defective and it is not meant to last. I"ve seen not just one, or two, or several, but a lot of cars with the same problem in the freeways; therefore, I believe that this is something that Toyota must pay and ask for a recall. Also, I considered dangerous because the handle is connected to the brake light and if there is any interference it can cause an accident.
