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 am driving our 2009 Toyota Camry hybrid which my husband and I purchased new. I was approaching the city of anacortes wa. I had been driving on sr 20 which goes from 55mph to 35 mph and from two lanes to one.I am approaching a light I have my foot on the brake when suddenly my car accelerated as if I had floored it, hitting a pickup truck in front of me. Upon impact it moved forward and then with my foot still on the brake I hit it again. I have no idea how fast I was going but for that brief time I felt as if I was in a rocket. I put the car in neutral and at this point regained control and was able to pull to side of road. No damage to the truck. My front bumper needs to be replaced as well as bent license plate. Air bag did not deploy. The car was put on a flatbed and brought back to our residence some 50 miles away. Neither of us are thrilled about getting behind the wheel of this car again and so it sits in our garage.our plans are to get rid of this car even though we loved it up until this point. My husband called the dealership yesterday ( 3/30/15) and they referred him to Toyota usa. He spoke with someone there and was given a case number he was told he would receive a call within twenty four hours. Well that came and went and when he called back today he was told the person who was handling this was gone for the day he was told she attempted to reach us twice. Strange she never left a message. We are at this time waiting for response.

This was a multi car pileup on a road with 40mph speed limit which resulted from a vehicle ahead making an abrupt stop. This resulted in about 4 cars behind it having to come to stop resulting in a chain reaction. My car, 2009 Toyota Camry hybrid, could not come to a stop in time when full breaking was applied and ended up colliding with the car in front of me. Mine was the last vehicle in the pileup. This incident resulted in front end damage to my car and rear end damage to the car in front of me, and to two other cars in front of that car. My car could not come to a complete stop in time because I believe the breaks did not function properly. I wasn't aware of any break issues at that time and it was only about two years later I was informed by the dealer service department that there is a recall on this vehicle that involved break fluid reservoir assembly. I am reasonably certain that the accident on 3-8-2012 was the result of breaks not functioning properly and that my car could not stop in time to avoid a frontal collision while traveling at a relatively slow speed of 40mph.

My husband & I were involved in a collision with a deer on June 8, 2014, with our 2009 Camry hybrid. We were traveling about 70 mph on interstate 72 East around jacksonville, il. It was a front end collision as you will see in the pictures. Neither of us was injured; however, the air bags did not deploy. Had this been something stationary that we had the collision with we would have been injured. Can you tell me why this would happen? I am now very concerned for my safety in my car.

Noise made when turn on heater. This happened suddenly with no previous noises before. Had been in car driving and using heater for about an hour before the noise started. This vehicle also had two other issues. Passenger & driver visors wont stay up. The door locks wont work. They haven't worked since not long after purchased vehicle. One day they work, another not.
