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 driving on the Massachusetts turnpike (route 90) my Toyota Avalon suddenly turned to the left (driver's side) and struck the highway median. I had no control of my Avalon and the vehicle was unresponsive to turning the wheel and to braking.

I purchased a certified used car from ira Toyota and since I've owned it 4 things have never worked: 1. the seat belts always stick and have been replaced and still do not work. 2. the driver's seat does not move forward and back. The dealer looked at it more than twice and still will not fix it. 3. the steering wheel does not turn smoothly and the dealer does not know why. 4. the vehicle continuously turns to the left, even after all new, superior wheels and tires, new struts and two front end alignments. The dealer: Ira Toyota could find nothing wrong.
