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.

Celica 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


A 2002 Toyota Celica, driven by our 16 year old daughter, exiting off of I-295-designated speed- 65 mph, was exiting onto I-10 eastbound ramp, and unable to slow down, lost control of her vehicle, and hit a light pole. The air bags did not deploy. Upon examination of the car at nimnicht Cadillac on blanding blvd, it was found that the car had brake failure which caused the accident.
