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 event leading to the failure was me reaching to open the rear hatch of the car. When I placed my hand on the car hatch handle, the hatch panel broke off and hangs over the license plate and swings violently when I'm driving. Toyota claims that the part isn't covered by warranty.
