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

problem #1

Corolla 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The seat belt in my 2003 Toyota Corolla le, purchased in April 2002 is locking me up in my driver seat at every, even very light deceleration of the car. I have to stop my car before the intersection, release the locked seat belt and follow slowly to the intersection line, being able to move in my seat and observe the intersection situation. If instead of observing the traffic I have to work with releasing my seat belt the situation impairs the safety of my driving.
