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.

2003 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

  • 40,000 miles


The 2003 Toyota Corolla makes noise at speeds over 40 miles per hour. I took the car to 2 different shops and they came back with the same results. The bearings are bad and need to be replaced. I contacted Toyota and they refused to fix it due to the time although the bearings should last much longer then the 40K miles even their warranty says 60K miles. This is a safety issue since the wheel can came off while you drive and injure the driver and others. People who have this issue and may not even realize it as I did, I thought it was the muffler and is not is a safety issue. Please post this on your website as this is very dangerous for people. Toyota should investigate what is wrong with the bearings they use.
