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.

Purchased a new 2010 Toyota Camry. After ~ 300 miles the engine had a new noise on start up. It was diagnosed as a problem with the variable valve timing gear assembly. After picking up the car it has been draining oil and is now not drivable.

2010 Toyota Camry experienced acceleration on freeway exit ramp at 7:30 am during rush hour. Put the car in neutral and the engine raced. Car was pulled over to the side with engine still racing. The ignition was turned off and it stopped running. Checked to see if there was an obstruction with a floor mat - there was none. After 30 seconds, started the car and it alternated between idle and engine racing while doing nothing to the gas pedal. Recall fixes had not been done yet. Dealers response was they did not know what caused it and didn't care what did - just put in the recall remedies and tried to give it back to us to "try this". we have no confidence that the problem was understood, or fixed or that the dealer even cares. Their response was that it is Toyota's problem not theirs.

Car: 2010 Camry le. Twice since purchasing the car in November the car has accelerated on its own. When accelerating to pass, the gas pedal travels to the floor, when it was not pushed that far. Both times I reacted by quickly putting the car in neutral and the pedal immediately returned to its neutral position. No damage, no injuries in either event.

I experienced a runaway acceleration while driving my 2010 Camry le V6 (made in Japan). While leaving the parking lot of my work place I was trying to pull away from a stop sign and the engine revved out of control. As I tried to pull away from the stop sign the tires slipped because it had just snowed. I gave it a bit more gas to get over the snow when the car started to pull away from the stop sign the engine revved out of control. I pressed and held down on the brake, the car continued to pull forward, I put the car in neutral and the engine was at redline for about 10 more seconds then returned to normal. At no time did I floor the accelerator, it was not stuck. I stepped down on the gas just a bit to clear the snow patch and the engine just revved out of control. I am lucky this didn't happen in traffic, and I knew enough to hold down firm on the brake, or there could have been an accident.
