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.

2001 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #1

Corolla 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,000 miles


I was driving on the 22 East on Nov 27 '04 930 am. About 6 seconds before I changed lanes, their was a 3 second their was a sprinkle of rain. I changed lanes and noticed a stoped car about 330 feet in front of me, while traveling at 60. I aplied my foot on the brake and I slid with brakes locked. I then repressed the brakes and again slid with brakes locked. I then removed the pressure and noticed that the brakes didn't unlock. I then aplied and removed my pressure trying to unlock the brakes, before hitting the car. My car is sitting waiting for repair.
