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.

Rear power windows fail to operate. Safety hazard in hot climates. Toyota has acknowledged in a technical service bulletin, but repairs not covered except under 3 year/36K mile factory warranty. Suggest a recall to repair this safety hazard, especially in hot climates where children can be trapped in the vehicle if unable to operate the windows correctly.

2006 Scion Xb, found windshield cracked after leaving the car parked. The crack was not there in the morning but in the afternoon, an L shaped, 4" by 10" crack starting from behind rear view mirror appeared, the car has 7700 miles this is a "weekend car" as it is parked in the garage in most of the time. Showed the crack to local Scion dealer and they claim it was due to an impact from a pebble. They used a ball point to demonstrate that there is a pit. I am planning to replace the glass soon.
