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.

When the high-beams are activated, they shine a beam of light vertically from both lenses. The beams formsan "X" that crosses directly in front of the drivers field of vision- it is so pronounced that it lights up trees above the car. I contacted Toyota service and asked if it was a lens problem with my vehicle- they said they have received complaints before but have no plans to redesign headlight lenses. This situation is a distraction to the driver, and affects visability - especially in rain or haze when light beam bounces off and obscures forward vision.
