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.

2002 Toyota Camry Owner Comments

problem #1

Camry 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The trunk release on this car failed. This is bad enough, but when it fails the emergency trunk release that is located in the trunk no longer functions either. If a child gets trapped in the trunk, they probably won't be able to get out. Since I have small children, I am really concerned. I called a Toyota dealer and was told that the trunk release is repaired fairly often. I was told they have to take the trunk apart to get access to repair the part. I would say this is unacceptable. I am aware of the trunk lock feature that prevents access to the trunk unless you have a key. Regardless of this feature, the trunk should be able to be opened from the inside to prevent possible death to small children. This has not been repaired yet.
