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.

First the outside hand snapped off while I was trying to open the door in the rain. About 3 months later the inside door hand broke off because I was having to open door by reaching in from back seat or passenger side. I have own at least 2 Camry's and love the car put very poor workmanship .

exterior plastic door handle breaks off exterior plastic door handle breaks off

I have a 2000 Toyota Camry. Today the plastic part on the handle of the outside drivers side door snapped off when I was trying to open my door. When it snapped off I sliced my finger on the metal under the plastic. I have had problems over the years of trying to open the drivers side car door and it didn't open immediately but today it just snapped off completely. I have read other complaints about this happening and it seems like it happens more when it is cold outside. This is an annoying problem!
