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.

The mechanic said that the engine had blown a piston. It was no longer under warranty and so we had to pay to put in a second hand engine from who knows where. We had always changed the oil and done other routine servicing at the Toyota dealer. I guess the car was a lemon.
