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.

2005 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #1

In June 2006 the brakes on the 2005 Toyota Corolla suddenly felt loose, but they worked, and a mechanic found no problem. I noticed that the brakes were dragging and reported this to the dealership, but before I could go in for service the brakes locked in downtown minneapolis during rush hour. I got my car to a nearby service station and they replaced the brake pads and other worn-out parts. The car was fine for a few weeks, I submitted the brake work under my warranty, then the brakes began dragging again. I brought the car to my dealership, they found no problem, and Toyota denied my claim under the theory that "brakes aren't covered." I think my master cylinder malfuntions when the temperature is high. Toyota has no response to the problem of my brakes dragging and locking up, other than to blame me.
