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.

On April 19, 2014 I purchased the above referenced vehicle, a 2010 Toyota Camry SE from prince Toyota dealership in tifton, Georgia. This vehicle was four years old and had less than 10,000 miles at the time of my purchase. Needless to say, it was in immaculate condition from its previous one owner. However, when I returned home to rome, Georgia on April 20th, 2014 I noticed a type of "stickiness? to the dash board area. I drove my vehicle to work and on that Tuesday, April 22nd, my supervisor, chief probation officer [xxx] wanted to look at my new car. I showed him my vehicle and also pointed out the stickiness on the dash board. Both he and I assumed that someone spilled something on it. The stickiness was located on both the passenger and driver side of the dashboard. On April 27th, 2014 I drove my vehicle on a trip to South Florida to see my sister graduate college. When I returned, on May 5th I took my car to have it washed and clean the inside. While wiping off the dashboard I noticed the stickiness again and my fingernail swiped across the dash and left a gash in the dashboard. I do not have long nails. I then began to feel around on the dashboard and noticed the entire dashboard was soft and could be easily destroyed. I then knew that this was not something someone had spilled on the dash and realized this is a defective dash board. I began to research it and found article after article online where other people were reporting the same problem. It has been named a ?melting dashboard". this has occurred in other auto dealer's vehicles as well as Toyota's. I have also found that other dealers have replaced the dash boards and have called them defective.

The contact owns a 2010 Toyota Camry. The contact stated while driving at 40 mph, she noticed a rat crawl from under the passenger seat, into the glove compartment and into the air conditioning unit. The sight of the rat almost caused the contact to lose control of the vehicle. The contact was able to remove the rat from the vehicle. The dealer made repairs to the rear seat and seat belts, in which the rat had chewed through. The dealer also cleaned the air conditioning unit. The contact spoke with the dealer about possibly having a wire mesh installed over the air intake to prevent any future rodents from entering the vehicle. The dealer advised that although the failure was a common occurrence in her year, make and model, he would have to get authorization from the manufacturer to perform the repair. The contact was awaiting authorization from the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 11,500 and the current was unknown.

I am requesting that dot NHTSA investigate the driver's contribution to unintended acceleration (ua) and Toyota's accelerator/brake pedal designs that make it possible. I was driving a rented Toyota Camry in a parking lot. I applied the brake and instead of slowing down the vehicle began to gain speed. I pressed harder on the brake and it accelerated. The harder I tried to stop the car the faster it went. I took my foot off the brake for a moment and the vehicle stopped accelerating. I believe that my foot was on both the brake and the accelerator pedals. I measured the distance between the brake and the accelerator and found that it was only 1.5 inches. My vehicle a GM acadia is 2.5 inches. This made me think that the tops of the two pedals are too close together. I managed to find 6 different Toyota models including the prius and they averaged 1.5 inches between the tops of the brake and the accelerator pedals. I measure competitive vehicles and found they averaged 2.2 inches. Something is wrong with the Toyota designs they are too close together. I have continued to investigate unintended acceleration and have collected a significant amount of data that supports the fact that the driver is a major cause of ua and that some vehicle designs make it possible. I have conducted driving tests and simulated the conditions that cause ua. They clearly identify that Toyota pedal designs contribute to the driver being a cause of ua. Good vehicle pedal designs make it very difficult to simultaneously and unintentionally depress both pedals. From the ODI incident reports GM vehicles seem to be particularly insensitive while the Ford 150 truck seems to have a large number of complaints. There must be something in the pedal designs or operation that makes this possible. I have read two older dot reports concerning ua and they indicate that the driver is a cause of ua. Why is that not studied and acknowledged now? please formally investigate.

I bought 2010 Camry couple of months ago and hear a heavy wind noise from the passenger side. I am told by Toyota rep that it is a design issue and there is nothing can be done. Both left and right sides and front of the car is identical. If it was a design issue then why noise on right side only. Not sure if something going to let loose. Can you please help addressing this problem with Toyota. Already there are numerous problems such as accelerator pedal, brakes and so forth. Thank you for your kind attention.
