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.

1. my wife was driving into a parking space at the local costco store. 2.as she was slowing into the space, the accelerator seemed to jam and the car raced forward, jumped the concrete barrier, hit the parking pole and collided with a row of shopping wagons. 3. we have notified our Toyota dealer, the Toyota headquarters, our insurance who have said they may have to total the car, the car was towed to our dealer's auto shop.

Both visors (L&R) have broken. When the visor is latched out of the way there is undue stress on the hinge and anchor causing the hinge assembly to break apart. This stress also causes the anchor that to holds the visor at rest to rip out. This is clearly is a desgin flaw and should be repaired by Toyota. I was told out of warranty at 39,000 miles, sorry.
