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 have a problem with a distracting light that interferes with my night operation of the car. At night, away from lights, I see the 140 from the speedometer and the E from the fuel gage, reflected in the windshield. The image is upside down and the light is a safety concern as it is dead ahead in the field of travel. I have adjusted my seat so I am as low as possible, the top of my head is about 1" from the ceiling. I've contacted the Toyota dealer. They stated they could not see the reflection, but if it is there, they report "this is a design flaw and nothing can be done".

The image is upside down and the light is a safety concern as it is dead ahead in the field of travel. Ive adjusted my seat so IM as low as possible, the top of my head is about 2 from the ceiling. I've contacted the dealer that attempted to service this, regional and national Toyota offices (case # 200110160534). They report "this is a design flaw and nothing can be done".

During night driving a portion of the speedometer reflects off windshield, creating a distraction. Toyota claims my VIN represents the vehicles that were corrected during production, but the reflection still exists.

While driving at night dashboard light will reflect on windshield glass, and will interfere with driver's vision in dark. The reflection on to windshield was due to design flaw. The dasboard does not extend far enough to block the reflection from the instrument panel.
