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.

"takata recall" my daughter was driving on the highway and the driver side "side airbags" deployed for no reason what so ever. Just so happen, the police was driver in the next lane over and witnessed the whole thing. I am having a horrible experience dealing with Toyota. I chose Toyota because of the reliability of the car and this the the 2nd brand new Toyota for my daughter. After this experience, this will be the last.

My fiancÉ had a seizure while driving her Scion Tc (2015). She ran into the dumpster at a coffee shop. Witnesses and authorities confirmed the speed was significant enough for airbags to deploy. Because of her body seizing she accelerated. Customers and employees inside the coffee shop heard the crash. The dumpster is all the way in the rear of the building. The airbags did not deploy. As a result she is suffering injuries sustained.
