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.

I was T-boned by an unlicensed, uninsured driver. His 1998 Lincoln town care hit my driver's side door, back door. Destroyed both doors, front fender, rear fender, and two tires. No airbag went off in my Toyota and I was wondering why. I may have a broken bone in the rotocuff of my left shoulder. I am scheduled for an mri to find out.

Avalon Hybrid

  • 1,700 miles
On October 7, 2014, we purchased our car from new rochelle Toyota. Since that time, we have barely driven the car. After five months we have driven approximately 1,700 miles. We have specifically avoided driving the car in inclement weather and on bumpy roads. Despite our care, I noticed that the front bumper has disconnected from the body of the car in the front wheel well. At first, I thought that a screw had come out, but on closer inspection I noticed that the metal piece of the bumper which the screw held in place had broken off. I immediately went to the Toyota service department to have them look at it. They told me that the only way to fix it would be to replace the entire bumper. They also told me that I was not the only one to have this problem. It is clear that the metal at the end of the bumper is not strong enough to withstand normal driving conditions and that the damage was caused by a combination of metal fatigue and poor design and construction. I am writing to you to report this problem, which clearly is not a unique situation. The dealer?S service department had no solution to this problem other than to replace the entire bumper. This solution is costly (although I would expect Toyota to pay this cost) and, unless the piece is redesigned will simply temporarily solve the problem since the same piece is likely to break again. It is unfortunate that a problem like this should develop on such an expensive car.
