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.

Open the side door or trunk and shut the door. The driver door locks and the other doors are not locked. The only way to open the driver door is key remote..the drivers door will lock when it wants too.I have had Toyota to look at it and they say they have to see it happen.I have had it in the shop many times and over night and they don't see the problem.they tell me it is brain problem and changed something but it did not save the problem. I am tried of getting out of my car and this door locking on me. Any door can be open except the drivers door. This a safety issue to if I can not get in my car right away. Please help me get this issue solved. I would hate to be in an accident and the door not open because it looked itself.
