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.

  • 119,170 miles
The contact owns a 2001 Toyota Corolla. While driving 55 mph, the front hood of the vehicle released, blocking the contact's view of the highway. The hood smashed against the windshield, which caused it to bend out of shape and become destroyed. The contact pulled over and stopped the vehicle. The windshield was cracked and the roof above the windshield was also damaged. The vehicle was no longer under warranty and the dealer stated that the contact was responsible for the repair costs. The failure and current mileages were 119,170.

Corolla 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2 miles
The dashboard has a black background and the letters are red, and with certain lighting it is almost impossible to read. Can't see quickly. Has to concentrate and study, which takes the consumer's eyes off the road. Contacted Toyota, they can't do anything about it. However, on 2005 models they have changed it back to white.
