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.

2007 Toyota Avalon [xxx], 21,000 miles, this vehicle is equipped with the "smart key system". parked vehicle at local walmart store locked doors with push button at exterior door handle, I had left the key fob in the vehicle! ! the doors should not lock in this situation, however they did! after shopping I returned to vehicle and tried several times to unlock doors, the doors did not unlock. Had to have friend drive me home to pick up spare fob. The spare fob unlocked the doors. Notified Toyota dealer (nourse, chillicothe Ohio) who advised me to go to local radio shack and purchase a new battery for the fob. I purchased and installed new battery and the fob begin to work again. I did not receive any warning that the battery needed changed! I could have been many miles from home when this happened, scary thought. I must say this is the only trouble I've had with is vehicle.
