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.

  • 97,000 miles
The right side view mirror is fogging up. I contacted Toyota (case no. [xxx]) after taking the car to a dealer who said the entire unit had to be replaced at a cost of $680, stating this is a safety issue that should not have happened since the mirror had not been damaged. Their position was that nothing could be done by Toyota. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
