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.

I want to bring to your attention a concern that is primarily one of safety but which also involves poor and misleading information by Toyota related to the blu-logic cell-phone connection system included as a feature on my new 2012 Camry hybrid. My concern stems from the fact that the blu-logic system, obviously coined to sound like bluetooth, and even listed on some dealer websites as a bluetooth connection, is misleadingly described as handsfree communication and a handsfree solution in the separate brochure provided by Toyota. In actuality, the system as such is at best only 50% ?handsfree. Only incoming calls may be engaged in without cell phone in hand. Outgoing calls may be initiated handsfree only if ones cell phone itself is equipped with voice-activated dialing, a 4G-type feature I would estimate only a fairly small minority currently possess. So the de-facto reality of the blu-logic system is that it forces most drivers into the unsafe practice of manually initiating outgoing calls by manually dialing with cell phones in hand. But in a deceptive omission, the Toyota guides do not even mention the possibility of making calls in this manner. Indeed, the phone-bank rep I spoke to told me, presumably with a straight face, that it was not possible to do so, even though I have accomplished it on several occasions. It is hard not to see this omission of both service and information as a cynical evasion by Toyota, part of a cost-cutting effort to appear to offer handsfree in-car cell-phone service, a la bluetooth, while actually providing an unsafe system which forces a driver to use hands to make calls. And part of this evasion appears to include a cover-up when a customer raises the issue.
