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.

The sun visor on my 2008 Toyota Camry does not snap back into place anymore and keeps falling down into my eyes while driving. I have to hold it up with one hand while I drive. Not very safe. I went to the dealer today and they told me it was $160 to replace with labor.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Both sun visors of my 2008 Toyota Camry broke off about 10 months ago through no fault of my own. The visors first began to hang limply, so I could not properly adjust them to keep out the sun. While trying to adjust them they simply fell off. The drivers side broke first and within 2 months the passenger side also broke. When the first broke I thought it was just some aberration, but after the second I realized there is something in the manufacturing of the visors that is faulty. Both occurred outside of the warranty window. It is now dangerous to drive in early morning and late evening, because of the lack of the visors. I will continue to follow up with Toyota for reimbursement, but I felt it was necessary to notify NHTSA to see if others have had similar problems. Thank you.
