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

Sep 152003

(reported on)

Camry LE

  • 60,000 miles


Every time I go up a hill at a minimum of 40 MPH I smell a rotten egg sulfur smell if my windows are rolled down at all. This happens at any speed above 40 MPH if I am going up an incline.

Every Toyota dealership I have gone to (4 total) refuses to look at my catalytic converter and just says that the gas I buy is "bad". Problem is I buy gas in NH, NY, VT, and MA and it doesn't change. Sometimes the smell is so bad I get dizzy and start to have headaches! Toyota refuses to help and insists it is where I buy my gas!

I am the only person out of 6 Toyota owners that I know (including my wife!) who has this problem. I hate to think that Toyota just doesn't want to eat the cost of replacing the catalytic converter since it is under warranty until 80,000 miles but when they refuse to even look at it, I start to wonder.
