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 Camry le,50K miles always pulls to left. Has been to dealer and various shops. Steering wheel shudders and vibrates at any and all speeds. Problem is structural. Brakes are constant problem. Sunroof will not seal correctly therefore rear floor is now wet. Now experiencing electrical problems. Would have been better off buying a 1950 studebaker! and GM is in trouble? last Toyota for me. Car is unsafe.

I purchased a 2002 Toyota Camry le V in Oct 2002 I started noticing that in Nov 2001 that the vehicle would pull to the left when I was driving on the highway. I aslo noticed that when I am driving the vehicle I can feel every vibration and bump in theroad while holding the steering wheel and through the gas pedal. I have taken the car to the dealer in December 2001 and was told that there was nothing wrong with the car. They took it out for a test drive but did not exceed 40 miles an hour. I have brought the car to the dealer at least two more times and was told that there was nothing wrong with it. In December 2002 I took the car to the same dealer and was told that the car was out of alignment I had the alignment done and the car is no better.

I have 2002 Camry SE V6. The car came with brigestone tires that were totally uncontrollable under very little snow conditions. Driving this car on a couple of snow days gave me the scare of my life. I tried to contact the dealer and Toyota many times and did not get any help. I have spend $300 traded my new tires to different tires. The traction of the vehicle greatly improved. I simply can not believe a 'reputed' car company can S... customer like this when they spend $30,000 on a brand new car. The second problem I have is that the car 'wobbles' while driving at all speeds. May complaints to the dealers got the same response: "the road are to be blamed, nothing wrong with the car". recently I got the wheel balance/alignment done. Not much difference. I drive my other vehicle on the same roads and never feel this way. Driven other cars and not felt like this. This definitely seems some defect in the suspension/wheels or frame. Toyota - you better do something about this or people will just "talk" about these problems and you will have to hear them.

The vehicle drifts to the left/right at mid to high speeds, and becomes hard to control when the vehicle pulls to the left (the driver must hold the steering wheel tightly to resist the pulling). Both Firestone and Toyota suggested that the problem is an unbalanced suspension. Scc
