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.

Malfunctioning right rear wheel speed sensor causes ABS and vsc lights to go on and when lights are on the ABS and vsc do not function. Was told that I needed to replace the right rear hub, bearing, sensor and harness. Vehicle had only 52939 miles on it and was off warranty so would cost over $1000 to repair. Several months later, lights have gone off without repair. Noted that this is a common problem with Xb, yet no recalls.

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Scion Xb. The contact started the ignition. Immediately, the anti-lock brake system (ABS), visibility stabile control (vsc) and traction control warning light indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The warning light indicators remained illuminated until the engine was turned off. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection. The technician stated the failures were contributed to the speed sensor and wire harness corrosion. The vehicle has not been repaired at this time. The failure mileage was 90,000.
