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.

By 2011, both back windows inoperable (motor burned out due to electrical issues) and I am having issues with the air conditioning and electrical dash display. The dealer (avenues Toyota in jacksonville, fl) said there are no recalls and instructed me to call Toyota directly about the problem. The dealer wants to charge me $500 each to replace the motor in both back windows and claims there are no issues that they are aware of at this time. I found numerous claims on the internet to substantiate that this is not an isolated case and the electrical issues extend throughout the Toyota line during the time the vehicle was manufactured.
