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.

I have a 2005 Toyota Corolla. There is no shield to protect the ac condenser which was hit by a rock and now has a leak in it. The cost to repair the condenser will run 500-600 dollars, but if there is still no shield installed to protect the new part then the same thing will probably happen again. In models after 2005 Toyota has installed a piece to protect the condenser, they should be providing this type of part to the 2005 models without cost.

A/C condenser which went out on Monday. I've discovered that Toyota issued tsb AC002-06 admitting that the condenser is flawed. However, because it was not recalled, they are not responsible. I am having it repaired because I live in new orleans and the heat is unbearable. This is a totally unfair practice. I think that these issues should be illegal since they've admitted the flaw. I was told that there is no protection for the new condenser. It was corrected in the 2007 model but not the 2005. I am livid at the fact that Toyota is so uncaring about the 2005 owners. I should be reimbursed for the repair ($677) and, also, advised as to how I can prevent this from happening again. Where can I find mesh to protect the new condenser?

The A/C condenser was replaced due to Toyota's admitted design flaw as per their technical service bulletin AC002-06 titled lower grille mesh protection cover. Which informs an owner that their A/C condenser is unprotected which will cost them $590. However, Toyota failed to back their product up by reimbursing it. This is safety hazard in the southwest because of the extreme heat and if someone with children goes to turn their air conditioning on and it does not work this poses health risks.
