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

  • 39,529 miles


I was driving and all of a sudden there was a buzzer and several warning lights came on the dash - master warning light, brake system warning light, brake system warning light, and there was a warning message that said "check vsc system". then when I tried to apply my brakes, they started pumping and I had a hard time stopping. I managed to make it the few blocks to my house and I called the dealer service department. They said it was unsafe to drive and I had it towed to the service department. The car had been there 8 days prior for a normal service appointment. They said that the stroke sensor had gone out and when I asked how it happened they said it just malfunctioned for no reason. The cost to replace was $433.14. I am concerned about driving a car that can suddenly malfunction and lose braking function without warning. The car had received its regular service/maintenance just a week before, so there is no reason that the brakes should have failed without warning.
