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.

Vehicle was being driven on a dirt road, going around a corner, the vehicle did not slow down and went off the road and skidded alongside the road for about 30 ft. The vehicle then hit a few small stumps, still without slowing down, and finally slammed into a large tree. The impact in which the car hit the tree was so strong that the back end of the car rose up into the air and stayed in that vertical position. Only the tail lights were still visible from the road after the car slammed into the tree and stopped. If the tree hadn't been hit, the car would have continued down the hillside into the bottom of a ravine, about another 40 ft. The entire front drivers side was shoved almost to the windshield and not one of the airbags deployed. The entire drivers side of the motor and hood were destroyed, the battery was crushed and leaking acid everywhere and was sitting behind the front tire and the hood was "V" shaped and pushed into the windshield. There were no skid marks so clearly the brakes weren't functioning properly either, also the speed in which the vehicle went into the tree shows that the acceleration was faulty because the vehicle wouldn't slow down. The drivers face slammed into the steering wheel and broke her nose and received a possible concussion because the airbags failed to deploy, along with numerous bruises and scratches. The damage is so severe that the car is a total loss but still we are left wondering why the airbags didn't go off. If the driver hadn't been wearing her seatbelt, it is very likely that she would have been thrown straight through the windshield and it would have been a fatality. We have pictures of the vehicle and the scene of the accident to show just how serious and dangerous this is. We would like to have answers as to why a vehicle with such high crash test ratings would fail to provide adequate safety to the driver.

We were in a construction zone, and we were at a complete stop in stop and go traffic. The car behind us going 65 " 70 mph never stopped. Smashed us from behind and pushed us into the back of a semi truck. I have contacted Toyota and they said they do no go off all the time. Isn't what they are for" this was an impact from the back and the front. When I did the research on airbags, they are designed to go of at what mph. The reason that we purchased this vehicle was for the safety ratings. I would like to get some answers. All Toyota does is make excuses. I loved my car. 2011 Toyota Camry.

The vehicle was purchased as a used rental return vehicle on August 18, 2011. On September 7, 2011 the vehicle was taken to the dealership (iron trail motors - Virginia, mn) because the air bag sensor on the passenger side turned off while the seat was occupied by an adult. The dealership told us that they reset the airbag and that would resolve the problem. I took the vehicle home and within a week the same error occurred on the passenger side airbag. I returned the car to the dealership and they ordered a new wiring harness from Toyota and replaced the wiring to the air bag and sensors. I once again took the vehicle home and within three days the same error recurred. I returned the vehicle and after having the car for four days I received a phone call from the dealership stating that the factory representative from Toyota told them (dealership) that we were "being seated to heavily" on the seat and that there was nothing they could do to repair the problem and they would reset the sensor once again, additionally I was also told by the dealership that Toyota would no longer pay for any further returns of the car because of air bag issues. Today I filed a formal complaint with Toyota customer care (case # [xxx]) information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Heading East on rt. 41 and upon intering an intersection on a green ligth I slowed to allow 2 cars to pass from the oncoming East traffic before making a left turn North onto a 4 lane street. Upon accelerating to make the turn, the car hit the right curb at a high rate of speed causing me to quickly steer to the left to stop me from hitting the on coming traffic from the North.. I managed to cross two lanes but in the third lane was hit by an oncoming South bound vehicle.. my car was then stopped by the left hand curb. The other vehicle was demolished and $8,000 damage was caused to my front end. The air bags in the demolished car were deployed but mine were not. I feel as though the vehicle suddenly excelerated causing the accident so after having the car repaired and checked I could not feel safe in it so traded it off the one that I could.

On 9 Dec 2010, I drove a rental car, 2011 Toyota Camry (blue) from Virginia back to New Jersey (NJ). The car had 3316 miles when I rent on 8 Dec 2010 in NJ. At approximately 6:35 pm edt on 9 Dec 2010, I was driving in the most left express lane at 60 mph in prince george's county in Maryland. The driver from my right hand passenger side tended to pass me from the right, and that car was also very close to me. I could not even see the rear light of that vehicle. I was forced to slow down the 2011 Toyota Camry to avoid collision, but the car could not simply slow down. In order to avoid the collision, I shift part of my car to the shoulder in my left hand side. Then I discovered a car parked on the shoulder with no signals/lights. I put on brakes the 2011 Toyota Camry really hard to the floor, but the car could not slow down and could not stop completely. The brake system in the 2011 Toyota Camry was obviously failed and it was even accelerated during the last few seconds prior to the collision. The 2011 Toyota Camry was finally hit right onto back of the parked car (on the shoulder). After the severe collision at the front driver side, none of the airbags in the 2011 Toyota Camry was deployed from this sever front driver side collision. Most of all, I was not able to stop the 2011 Toyota Camry due to its braking system failure! the mileage after the collision was 3595 and the total number of miles driving during this trip was 279 miles (8-9 Dec 2010). I was hurt severely in the lower back/lumbar spine area. I was very lucky that I was survived from this severe car accident.
