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: Much like the 2007 model year, which has a higher number of complaints, owners are reporting that their engines are running out of oil awfully quick. As in, 1 quart every 1,200 miles. Toyota maintains that’s with the “normal” operating range of the 2AZ-FE while owners maintain that’s complete BS.

The issue may be the result of defective piston rings and is the possible target of a class-action lawsuit.

problem #1

Jan 102009

Camry 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Camry. When attempting to accelerate at 50 mph, the vehicle hesitated and then began to accelerate past the intended speed. After repeated brake application she was able to decelerate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and all of the tires were replaced. After the repair the failure resurfaced. She took the vehicle back to the dealer, and the technician completed a software update. He then added that the rotors were out- of- round and thus needed to be turned. None of the repairs have remedied the failure. The technician then concluded that because they could not duplicate the failure, they could not provide a remedy. She inspected her vehicle and noticed that the clips did not properly secure the cover to the air filter housing. The failure mileage was 17000. The current mileage is 31,000. Updated 2/22/10 the consumer stated the vehicle lacked power. The dealer recalibrated the ECM and transmission. Updated 07/09/10.
