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.

While returning home on Nov.19, 2009 there was fresh snow and cold temperatures. Approaching an intersection, a garbage truck failed to yield the right of way. I applied the brakes on my 2008 Scion Xd and they locked, the ABS failed to activate. This resulted in an injury accident. After the car was in the body shop I contacted Toyota safety department and the sent a rep to inspect the car, he reported no problem w/ the brakes. Today I found that there is a recall on the brake system of the 2008 Scion Xd which states the brakes may fail in extremely cold ambient temperatures. Toyota only released this recall in 19 states that it deemed cold enough. I had taken this car to the dealer 3 times prior to the accident with concerns about the brakes. And they refused to look at the car at that time, stating they were to busy and to make an appointment, by the appointment the temp would have risen and the problem non existent. Your site won't allow me to continue unless I select model xb when I was driving an Xd. Updated 03/04/10
