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.

Camry LE 2.2L

The airbag warning light started flashing on me, sometimes it would flash, or stay on and then totally go off. Its been doing that only for one month then the light is on all the time now when I start the car. Hoping that is was just a reset problem, come to find it was the airbag's computer module. Dealer told me that it was shot and need to be replaced with the est. $538.00. Granted that this is a very serious fix, but who has that kind of money to spend. This should be a safety issue therefore making Toyota issue a recall.
