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.

Corolla 4-cyl

Rear head rests too big and block view in the rear window. I need to remove the rear headrests to drive the car in the summer time when air condition is on. Car seats are not comfortable.

I just bought this car, and unfortunately can't return it. The rear headrests are huge, blocking about 1/3 of the view out the rear window and making backing up and lane-changing risky. Similar comments are found by others on internet car review sites. Relying exclusively on mirrors should not be required. Can they issue smaller rear headrests" I am very concerned about hitting someone. If I had a big box in my rear view area, blocking a similar space, I probably would get ticketed by the cops for a safety violation. Why is this no different" I also wonder if, because of this visibility problem, I will be able to unload this car on anyone but a Toyota dealer when I sell it. (another problem: The "a" pillar (between windshield and left window) is huge, but I may get used to it, as I suspect my problem is due to having driven an older car for many years. Some left-side traffic (e.g., cyclists, children) that might fall into this "blind spot" and the view when making left turns typically are obscured by the thickness of this area. If I were taller, putting the seat back would help, but unfortunately that puts me too far from the pedals. Thought I'd mention this, in case others have trouble with it.
