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.

NHTSA recall 15V728 involving pre-collision system. Over 6 months have passed since I received notice of this recall. To date nothing has been done to correct the problem other than telling me to turn off the pre-collision system. Both leaving it on or turning it off lessen the safety of the vehicle.

When turning on the air conditioner in summer after the car has been sitting for a few hours or overnight; there is a musty, urine type smell. I did what Toyota service recommended by not recirculating the air; which we rarely do unless dusty. The system default is for recirculating air and we switch it over right away to fresh air when we start the vehicle. We changed the cabin filter to a Toyota charcoal filter which was recommended by Toyota which helped for only a few days we are concerned this maybe linked to a mold problem etc.
