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.

problem #1

  • 34,750 miles
While driving on the freeway at approx. 65 mph, the vehicle stopped running without any prior notice of an issue. Needed to cross, be coasted across 3 lanes of southern California freeway to the edge of the road. Car wouldn't start, appeared that battery was low on power. Had vehicle towed to dealership. Vehicle wouldn't start after new battery installed, tech indicated fuel system problem. After $400 cost to investigate problem, determine that the car was out of fuel even though tank still registered at least a 1/4 of a tank. Service rep. Indicated that the mechanism to detect fuel level within the tank had become stuck and had to be replaced. I will have owned the car for 4 years next month and it has less than 35,000 miles. Scion only provides a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty. I am planning to contact Toyota to see if they will cover all or part of the repairs.
