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.

Received safety recall notice (for SRS / ECU). I called local dealer delray beach, Florida to make an appointment. They say they will not order the needed parts unless I first bring the car in for their inspection " this sounds to me like a run around, either my car needs to be recalled or not. Are two appointments required for safety recalls or not " thank you, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Got the takata recall. Last spring, we received a letter from motorcars Toyota, cleveland heights that they had the parts so we made an appointment. When we arrived at the appointment we were told they did not have the parts and we would be informed when they were in. Never received a letter. This month received another notice of recall. Contacted motorcars Toyota again. They said that they did not have the parts and would not for 2 months. We contacted another dealership in cleveland, metro Toyota, and they made an appointment the following Friday, then did the repair. Clearly motorcars Toyota is not pursuing this recall like other dealerships. If someone in the cleveland hts area is hurt as a result, we would be happy to testify against motorcars Toyota.

Safety recall dsb from Toyota is for a fault in the ECU. I had the problem during the first recall over a year ago but they had not replaced the faulty ECU. I have been talking to multiple Toyota dealerships who have been telling me that the part for the recall is not available and keep having me call back every 6 months. It has been well over a year of trying to have the repair done for a known problem on my car and I have gotten no answers as to when they will have parts. I do not feel it is safe driving a vehicle with a potential of the air bags deploying at any point. I find it hard to believe that well over a year after this has happened Toyota still can Dodge providing parts for the repair.
