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.

I own a 2008 Xb and air bags never deployed when hit in passenger front side of car by a deer and back shoulder restraint didn't lock on impact allowed person to hit back of driver seat. After crash motor stayed running but hazard lights wouldn't work and just glad no one was killed. I just want someone to be aware that this could have been a bad outcome and to check out the safety of a vehicle to save lives.I did enjoy my Xb lots room and great handling in snow.

This vehicle had a lot of issues, first the front passenger seat belt fail 12/26/09 Toyota fixed/replaced now 4/3/12 discovered oil is burning to the point the oil light came on. Checked oil no oil show on oil dipstick then went to autozone bought the oil and topped it off 4/3/12. Before this both rear wheel bearings fail worn out. Replaced both sides cost almost $900 just parts alone. I've never own a new car before that has so much issues like this one. This vehicle is poorly made and Toyota should do something about this. Is this mean I will have to topped off my vehicle every other week or change my rear bearing and hubs every 50-70 miles or sooner" this is ridiculous and this is not Toyota it used to known for. I own Honda/Acura and Nissan never have this problem before. Not even once and have the vehicle more than 5-7 years already. Now my rear door/trunk don't want to open like there is time delay or some type. Why aren't Toyota warn people of the know issues or fixed it before they sell it"
