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.

2005 Scion xB Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 152007


  • 27,320 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Toyota Scion Xb. While driving at various speeds, the tip of the muffler would sporadically crack and then fall off. Prior to the failure, the contact heard a loud noise. He took the vehicle to a dealer and they stated that the exhaust system was potentially defective and they replaced the exhaust. One year later, the failure recurred and the vehicle was taken back to the dealer. A representative stated that because the warranty expired, the contact would be responsible for the repairs at the cost of $439. The manufacturers of the vehicle and the exhaust system were unable to provide assistance. The failure mileage was 27,320 and current mileage was 34,040.
