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.

Dashboard on my 2009 Toyota Camry hybrid bought in Florida new has become a danger to driving do to the shiny and stickiness on the dashboard. Back in August 13, 2014 I noticed when driving in the daylight the glare from the dashboard distorts your view the problem it seems to be getting worse I called the Toyota dealership where I bought the car and I told the service manager the problem he said they know about it and there is nothing they can do.I went to a car detailing service and they said it is the worse they seen he also checked on the website for a solution, now it is up to NHTSA to force Toyota to correct the problem before some one gets killed.

The dash on the Camry becomes very tacky and reflective, especially during warmer weather. Obscures vision through windshield due to glare and reflection. Also concerned of any toxic fumes which may be released due to this chemical reaction in an enclosed cabin of a vehicle.

The dashboard on my Toyota Camry is melting leaving a very shining effect that makes it difficult to see due to the glare. I have tried to clean it but nothing works and everthing sticks to it. I understand Toyota is aware of the problem but will not do anythng to repair it.

2009 Toyota Camry hybrid dashboard melting in Florida sun. I am concerned that the airbags will not deploy properly due to defect. Contacted Toyota regarding defect and was told that they know about the problem and have fixed the problem, but owners like me are out of luck. The cost for new dashboard is $1,400. I asked if they were certain that it would not affect airbag deployment and was told there is no way to know for sure.
