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

Feb 172005

Corolla 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 26,402 miles


We were traveling from tx to SC using cruise control (cc) on my 2001 Toyota Corolla le. Heat was noted on the cc switch on 2/16/05. On 2/17/2005 the cruise control was engaged at 75 mph. The cc failed to disengage when brakes were applied; cc failed to disengage at the switch. The acceleration would not stop despite brake application. The transmission selector was put into neutral and the car was stopped with foot and emergency brakes the engine continued to race at high rpms until the engine was turned off. An I-10 Alabama law enforcement agent disabled the cc by removing the cc fuse disconnecting something at the throttle body. This incident nearly caused a high speed collision. The Corolla 1nxbr12E5Z534307 will be serviced at the Toyota dealership in florence, SC.
