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 tailgate "handle" release broke of in my hands, without even pulling on it, on my 2005 Toyota Scion Xb. I went out to place something into the back of my car and when I pinched the release button and lifted the gate as I have done hundreds of times, the handle snapped off in my hands! after researching this issue I have found hundreds of people who have had the same experience, many have had this happen more than once! dealerships have even stated, "it is faulty part." However, Toyota fails to issue a recall.
