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.

problem #1

Jan 182005

Corolla 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72 miles
RPM's increase when my foot is on the brake and the force of the RPM increase decompresses the brake pedal and my foot slips of the brake pedal. I have not experienced an accident due to this but it worries me that it May. This happens on a daily basis. I heard this may be normal but now reading that other people experienced this, I plan to get it checked. Aside from this, there is dash board rattling, seal issue with windows because they whistle and also paint flakes off from a small ding.
