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.

I was involved in a very bad head-on collision and both leg and steering wheel airbags deployed. My car was headed southbound on the street and the SUV in front of me stopped suddenly because a school bus cut him off. I was wearing a seat-belt. The force of the airbags deploying was so great that it knocked me unconscious. The airbag that deployed by my legs has left me with some of the worst bruising I have ever seen and substantial pain. I have attached images of both the deployed airbags and my subsequent injuries. The er doctors, orthopedic doctor, neurologist and emts thought that these injuries were unusual and not consistent with the normal result of airbag deployment.

My daughter and a friend was in an accident in our 2011 Toyota Camry SE and neither of the front air bags came out. A girl slammed on brakes in front of them (in the rain) and she ran into the back of the girl at a speed of at least 45 to 50 mph and and air bags did not come out and her and her friend could have been seriously hurt.

The contact owns a 2011 Toyota Camry. While backing up in a parking area, the gear was shifted into drive and the vehicle accelerated at a high rate of speed without warning. The contact applied force to the brake pedal, which did not slow down the vehicle. As a result, the vehicle crashed into a tree. The vehicle was towed to a repair shop and the contact and two passengers were not injured. A police report was not filed. The air bags did not deploy. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and indicated that the contact would receive a response within a month. The approximate failure mileage was 66,350. Updated 1/21/16

It had only been about 1 or 2 months since I had purchased the vehicle and one day when I got in the car the cover of the side driver air bag was hanging. I called Toyota dealership and they said to take it back. They basically glued it back. This happened another 2 times but they said it wasn't a defect. They said it was due to the Texas heat. The cover is super glued on but when I go thru a rough road the air bag light turns on and off. For the last few months the air bag light has stayed on permanently.

On Sunday evening April 12 I was pulling into a parking space at the holiday inn in East brunswick NJ. When I applied the break, my vehicle accelerated on its own. It jumped the curbing in front of the parking space, swiped the front of a parked vehicle and crashed into a stone birdbath in front of the hotel. Miraculously I escaped with a rather ugly bruise to my left forearm and to my right breast from seat belt pressure. My airbag did not open. I will send the police report in another email. It says I was attempting to park in a "handicapped" spot. I was not. I am not handicapped. It also says I "inadvertently" applied the gas instead of the break. I never told anyone that. I was fully awake, conscious and applied the break. I sent a data imaging authorization and consent form to [xxx]. I have to enter a plea by mail to careless driving charges by 5/18/15. I requested that holiday inn provide me with surveillance video but was told that they would "deal directly" with the insurance company. I was notified on April 27th that my vehicle has been deemed a total loss. I was notified on April 29th that the vehicle's "black box" (for lack of a better description at the moment) would be inspected on April 30th and I would received a report on May 4th. I have no idea as to where to go from here. I need help. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I am writing because I believe that Toyota may have underreported a problem with the voluntary recall associated with NHTSA campaign number 13V014000. I own a 2011 Toyota Camry. However, my VIN was not a part of the recall, or neither I nor my dealer received notice. As you know, this recall is associated with the failure of the front passenger airbag to inflate in an accident. On February 17, 2015, my wife and daughter were T-boned, with the striking car hitting the front passenger door and B-pillar area flush at about 40 mph. Although the passenger side air curtain deployed, the right side airbag did not. My daughter received some injuries from the failure of this airbag to inflate and protect her. Toyota did visit the vehicle after the collision and downloaded the data from the electronic control module, and it showed a failure of that airbag. I tried to attach a copy of the downloaded data for your review, but was not able to attach it. Please let me know how to send you this pdf file. I am concerned that my car was not included in the recall and that perhaps Toyota has underreported the extent of the problem, putting more unsuspecting Toyota customers at risk. If you need any further information from me, please let me know. My cell phone number is [xxx]. I would like to be kept in the information loop regarding any investigation of Toyota that results from my complaint.

I was involved in an accident. I ran into the back of another car at 41 mph (there is a strong possibility that I had a black-out, docs are still examining the evidence). The airbag in the steering wheel did not deploy. Fortunately I was wearing my seatbelt and have lots of soreness and bruising on my chest, and severe memory loss around the incident. My garmin dash-cam was running the entire time, recording the date, time, location, gps coordinates, and speed in mph at crash time. You can clearly see how fast I was going when I rear-ended the other vehicle and the Camry I was driving sustained massive damage. The cabin held up well, but no airbags in the vehicle deployed, including the one in the steering wheel a few feet in front of me. Certainly this is not right?
