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.

problem #1

The driver seat suddenly went back skipping multiple seat settings. Luckily, I am fairly strong (as well as the steering column) I was able to hold on to the steering wheel until I was able to come to a complete stop. Before the seat failed, I did not change any seat position (I probably adjusted it a week before it happened). It happened again in February, that time it happened to me immediately after putting the automatic transmission in park the seat dropped back one position back. After all this all happened I took my car to my local dealer (Toyota of tampa bay) where they looked at the seat and said they could not find anything wrong. I am slightly suspicious that they did fix something but did not want to admit that there is a problem. This could have caused a serious accident if this happened to someone else or if I was driving faster (e.g. on the interstate) where smaller adjustments to the steering can cause severe injuries, if not fatalities.
