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 contact owns a 2006 Toyota Scion Xb. While driving approximately 20 to 50 mph, the headlights dimmed and visibility was reduced. The lights would illuminate again moments later. While driving 30 mph uphill, the vehicle accelerated to 60 mph. The brakes were applied, but would not function unless they were engaged at a rapid pace. Occasionally the engine shuts off, the front end shakes while driving 20-50 mph, and the cruise control switch failed to engage. The vehicle continued to burn an excessive amount of fuel after the oil was changed and the check engine light illuminated. The radio failed and the dealer stated that they would replace it when the parts arrive. The mechanic stated that the back of the bumper was split, which caused it to fall off of the vehicle. The dealer also offered her $14,000 for the vehicle only if she paid them $5,000. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure; however, they stated that the failures were electrical. The failure mileage was 400 and current mileage was 12,000. Updated 02-14-08.
