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.

For the 3rd time in 18 months the clutch pedal sticks making the vehicle not drivable. The linkage has broken, or according to Toyota service representative, dirt has collected underneath the cable which prevents the clutch from engaging properly. This seems to occur after the vehicle has been parked, but I dread it occurring in traffic or on the freeway. After the first occurrence, it did happen after I left the freeway from just having it repaired. Every incident requires a vehicle tow.

The car sustained a N L shaped crack in the windshield passenger side from no apparent impact. Clearly a design flaw and is likely to happen again according to how many people have complained about this.
