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.

2009 Scion tC Owner Comments

I have a 2009 Toyota Scion Tc which I am very afraid to drive but it is not on the recall list but I am having major problems with the brakes(ABS tracking system). I have had 3 very close calls as a result of my brakes locking up(going slow) and unable to stop, even after I take my foot off the brake they remain locked. One incident I almost went right into a busy 4 lane highway. It has happened on dry roads and wet roads are a lot worse, I have to start stopping a lot sooner than one should. I am very stressed when having to drive my vehicle anymore. Another issue which only happened once and was when I was driving slow it felt like my vehicle accelerated without applying any acceleration. I have a stick and I find myself unsure which gear to be in when the roads are wet because at times I feel like I am driving on glass and have to shift to higher gear as if there is too much power causing me to feel like I do not have full control of my car and that I am actually driving on glass and the roads may only be wet.
