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.

A beam of light comes from the headlights and shoot upwards, like a spot light. This causes a visibility distraction to the driver, especially when driving in fog or under over head trees. Also, reduces the headlights illumination on the road.

There appear to be a distracting stray of light when I have my headlights on at night. It is even worse when you have the high beams on. Is there anyway Toyota dealership can take care of this problem?

Both headlights have stray beams on high beam that project upward at a 45 degree angle. Very distracting when driving in light mist conditions. Dealer has attempted to adjust headlights with no effect on condition.

Left headlight demonstrates a distinct ray of light emanating up and out approx. 70-80 degrees perpendicular to the front of the vehicle on both high and low beam operation.

Headlights on the 2002 Corolla have been redesigned. They reflect a direct beam straight up. This is very distracting because the beams cross over the wind shield as they point up. This happens when the lights are on high beam. Have no idea how this appears to distant drivers. The engineers need to redo this design.
