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 contac complained against Toyota. The contact owns a 2006 Scion Xb special edition she purchased in March 2006. Thethe vehicle had a costume muffler that overlaped 2 to 3 inches out of the rear passenger side bumper. This part was an option, but on this vehicle it was standard. The contact stated that on December 28, 2006, after parking in N the driveway and opening the rear door of the vehicle her 16 year old step daughter suffered a burn when her right leg came in contact with the exhaust pipe. The second incident occurred on January 1, 2007, when her step daughter was in the rear of the vehicle talking to friends and one of them suffered a similar burn on his/her right leg. The contact felt that the manufacturer should be able to provide a safer muffler on this vehicle.
