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.

On the passengers side of my 2008 Toyota Avalon touring, the hid head light went out. Both high beam lights went out soon after as I began to use them until I could come in for the repair, about 4 days. Local Toyota dealership advised that the hid head light would cost $563 to replace. This cost breaks down to $350 for the part (one hid light), and $157 for the labor as they claimed to need to do complex things to be able to replace this bulb. To replace the low beam light along with two high beam lights would amount to a total of $700. What" how does a 2008 have a failed hid head light by 2009? also, how do both high beam lights go out"

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Avalon. The contact noticed that the headlights were not aligned. The driver's side headlight was lower than the passenger side. The motorized headlight self-leveling adjuster failed. The dealer replaced the driver's side headlight motor; however, the failure continued. The dealer stated that they did not have the optical equipment to properly correct the failure. The current and failure mileages were 12,508.
