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.

I had an accident recently with my 2001 Toyota Camry. My husband also had an accident in the same car a few years back. But both are kind of same scenario. The brakes don't work properly in rain.tried to stop but nothing happened and we rear ended cars before us.

In an accident where this vehicle rear-ended an Explorer at about 30 mph, neither airbag deployed. Camry has extensive front-end damage with all front-end systems pushed back into engine and wheels. Police at scene wondered why there was no airbag deployment, and towing and fire (medical) personnel used extreme caution until sure the airbag system was in fact disarmed by removal of battery.

The powdered chemical on the exterior of the airbags caused skin burns when the airbags deployed. This was particularly severe with respect to the driver of the vehicle, who burned, blistered, and has had residual rash and medical treatment for the chemical burns to the chest area, two months after the crash. I have been told that these types of airbag injuries are more typical of the first-generation airbags, but very atypical of airbags that would be installed in a 2001 model vehicle.
