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.

1999 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #1

May 242012

Camry XLE 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 88,000 miles


Check engine light came on and car would not pass emissions due to a bad O2 sensor that was located under the driver's seat, under the car. The O2 sensor could not be detached from the exhaust pipe because it had either rusted or fused together. Several people tried everything possible to detach it but it was not possible without breaking or torquing the pipe. The exhaust pipe had to be cut off in a section and a new piece recreated with an opening to reattach a new O2 sensor, then re-welded back together so the car would pass emissions. It was a big pain in the a$$ for a repair that should have been very simple.
