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.

Warranty enhancement notification -ZE6 repairs related to cracked dash board. Toyota sent letter in December,2014 indicating parts for the replacement would be available by late spring. I've made two calls and was basically told to wait for another letter but was provided no input regarding a possible date. I have a feeling they hope the problem will disappear. What can I do to get satisfaction? updated 10/06/15
