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.

Camry Hybrid 4-cyl

  • 75,880 miles


I was driving to work on the highway when all of the sudden my car started to slow down, I pushed on the accelerator and got nothing, the dash board lights came on and the car completely stalled. The computer screen said to "check hybrid system and check vsc system". I sat for awhile and tried to restart the car, it did start but it would move, and then it displayed on the computer, " put car in P" and again the message read check hybrid system and vsc system. The tow truck driver got into my vehicle to put it on the roll back and he noticed that the computer was saying the same thing to him, so I know I wasn't going crazy. The car was then towed to the dealership where I purchased it and they call me to tell me that the car is running fine and that there is no problem!!! I am furious, I bought this car because of Toyota's reputation, reliability and safety. I do not feel safe in the car!!!

Camry Hybrid

  • 45,500 miles
I was driving my 2008 Toyota Camry hybrid on a multi lane highway at about 60 mph, when the car jerked, all indicator lights came on and the engine became completely unresponsive. I pushed the accelerator pedal to try to maneuver to the shoulder and there was no response (no engine rev., no acceleration). I managed to get the car to the shoulder and upon restart, the car drove hesitantly. I made it to a Toyota dealership that night with all indicator lights still lit up. The next day as they began to look at the car, they could find no stored computer code for the problem and upon driving the car, it drove normally. As a result, they could not figure out the problem and have fixed nothing. A Toyota service tech also looked at the car with the same result. I now am being forced to pick up my car unrepaired. As I listened to the news last evening (March 18, 2010), they reported on a problem with the evm module in Toyota corolla's. this problem sounds very similar.
