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.

Within the first 3 months from buying my Scion from hammer Toyota my Scion sway bar breaks and come to find out there is a recall on that, but Toyota never sent me a notice till I took my car in.then there was a electrical problem as well that something was burning inside my car within the first 3 months and then a hammer Toyota employee brings me my car and they had crash my driver side doors.my next problem is that my car is only 4 years old I bought it with 0 miles off the lot and now the car charcoal canister breaks and I bought the extra warranty on my car only for them to tell me that the warranty doesn't cover it and it cost me $1800 for them to fix it.now the next problem is that the engine is burning to much oil within a month 1 qty of oil.I take the car to get service and check the oil before the month end and its burn just about 1 qty and that's only driving within the city not driving highway.now I am getting calls from Toyota wanting to buy my car back from me for less then what I bought my car for.this car has cost me more money then anything and problems.something is wrong here for them to be calling me to buy my car back from me why is my question? after so many problems I pay my car in full and only 3 to 5 months old when all this problems started and Toyota giving me the run around each time I took the car into them and told them about the oil problem for them to tell me just to check the oil every two weeks why should I check the oil every two weeks when the car is new at the time dozen make any sense if it gets oil service every 2,500 miles.
