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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2005 Camry. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2005 Camry is that for months on end, the news media repeatedly told the public that several Toyota models had an unintended acceleration defect, & to go to safercar.gov (the NHTSA's website) to file a complaint.

So, the NHTSA received a disproportionate number of complaints about Toyota unintended acceleration issues because of the national news media attention, to the point where their data is unreliable taken in context with any other vehicle that did not receive national news attention.

CarComplaints.com typically receives more complaints per day about vehicles than the NHTSA does, but the news media did not repeatedly say "go to CarComplaints.com to report your Camry acceleration problems" like they did about the NHTSA -- so although we have less complaint data than the NHTSA for the 2005 Camry, our data for the Camry is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Camry's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

We were driving home from lancaster, ca to ventura, ca. While driving we heard a strange noise and then my husband (who was driving) said the car was difficult to steer. As quickly and safely as we could we got to an offramp. We had a flat on the left front tire. During my call to aaa, my husband decided he would change the tire so I cancelled the request for service. Getting back on the freeway we heard the same noise that we had heard earlier so we pulled off the freeway again and saw that we had another flat tire, this was on the rear right. I called aaa and they had to tow us to ventura (approximately 40 miles) since we used the spare tire for the 1st flat. When we got to the sears automotive center, they told us that there had been a recall on the tire valves on our tires which we had purchased from sears on July 18, 2007. One other comment - on May 6, 2009, the front right tire went flat at my work place; aaa put the spare on and then we brought it into sears to have it repaired. They said there was a nail in it - no mention of tire valve problems.
