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.

Bought new 2006 Toyota Xb Feb 14 2006 May 10 steering column froze....while making turn. Hit curb...called Toyota they sent a national rep to dealership...looked at car and said "driver fault... nothing wrong with Toyota... so we had the car fixed with our insurance... the car was fixed $1000 deductible and state farm was stuck with $6500 Toyota said" car is running great" drove for 3 day's... column froze again I was following behind my son, saw what was happening and drove my car in between traffic to block him from being hit.... it could have been really bad. They took the car back to the dealer... now they want to replace the entire steering column... sending another Toyota rep... who can't get here for 2 weeks.... the car was only $17,000 to start with barely has 4,000 miles... when the tow truck driver came... he said a week ago he wouldn't have believed it was possible... now he has heard this story before.
