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.

Corolla 4-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
Car stalled on interstate - tried to get as far to right side as possible. Called and waited for a tow truck, which took me to a local auto repair shop. Auto repair shop informed me that I needed a fuel pump replacement, which is strange, since my 2005 Toyota Corolla is just barely 3 and 1/2 years old. Come to find out, when they went to order the part, they said it would cost 3 times the normal amount for a Toyota Corolla fuel pump because mine happen to be made in a batch during a 3 month period in which they no longer made that same sort of fuel pump. I have always kept up with my maintenance checks, so this fuel pump replacement seems like it was bound to happen no matter how well I took care of my car. It's only 3 1/2 years since I acquired this Corolla, and I'm already replacing an item that cost me over $1,500, which is a damage I had no control over. I'm afraid that this particular fuel pump is going to break at some point again, since it seems to be a part that Toyota no longer continued manufacturing...

(1) I bought a brand new 2005 Toyota Corolla. While driving away from the dealership I noticed an odd "humming" noise coming from the vehicle. I immediately took the vehicle back to the dealership where the service personnel informed me that the fuel pump needed to be replaced. The part was not in stock, so they ordered it immediately. (2) while driving down the highway the day before the service appointment the car stalled out on me! after I pulled over to the side of the road, the vehicle would not start! I had to have the vehicle towed back to the dealership. (3) the fuel pump was replaced.
