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.

Toyota has done a great job in covering up and blaming the owner for the Sludge Problem, for me I am lucky to be alive, no thanks to Toyota. I had been travelling on the Freeway and travelling at 100kmph, when my Engine blow up and I had no warning this was going the happen, and warning on the dash at all. Did Toyota care? NO they behaved as if this was a everyday thing and then blamed me, just as they are doing to all the others. (O WHAT A FEELING) do they have any feelings, in my opinion, I think not, except when they sell you the car and I am sure it is only the feeling of money, money, money.
