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.

Dear NHTSA, I purchased a 2003 certified pre-owned Toyota Corolla le on 9/17/05. I love the car, and it gets excellent gas mileage. However, I recently encountered a couple of problems with the car: -the car stalls at the traffic light and sputters and jerks like it is running out of fuel. -the resume function on the cruise control works occasionally, but not all of the time. I've taken it to two Toyota dealers in this area, but they can't fix the problems because they claim they can't duplicate the problem. On 12/16/05, I'm taking the car back to the Toyota dealer that I purchased the car from, and hopefully they will fix it.

The cruise control was under the steering wheel, which was very hard to use and see while driving.
