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 received a letter in the mail that Toyota has decided that a defect which relates to my car model and year exists, in accordance with the national traffic and motor vehicle Safety Act. "the subject vehicles are equipped with front passenger air bag inflators which may have been manufactured in such a way as to have a potential for the intrusion of moisture over time..... in the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the air bag cushion material, striking the vehicles occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death. I should not ride with any passengers until this matter is addressed further" unfortunately I live in atlantic city, which has one of the highest humidity levels for a city in the United States. This scares me as I have a wife and 3 children, and not being able to drive my family in this car is just not an option. I spoke to Toyota and they are refusing to act on this matter and just say that "I am in phase 1 and until this matter reaches phase 2, nothing can be done"

I received a notice in the mail over a month ago from Toyota stating that my vehicle's air bag inflators "may have been manufacture in such a way as to have a potential for the intrusion of moisture over time...this could create excessive internal pressure when the air bag is deployed and cause the inflator to rupture...metal fragments could pass through the air bag cushion material, striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death." This is a fatal potential manufacturing error. It is also an extreme inconvenience, as I do not feel comfortable having passengers sit in the passenger seat due to the issue. I have made 2 calls to my local Toyota dealer, as well as one call to the Toyota customer experience center. My Toyota dealer informed me that they do not have the parts, both times, and the Toyota customer experience center reported that they "do not have a remedy for the problem as of yet." I am appalled with the lack of attention this recall is receiving. I feel Toyota has failed to remedy the defect within a reasonable time. This is my official complaint to the administrator, national highway safety administration. Please inform Toyota of my discontent with their inability to make right a serious issue in a timely manner. Sincerely, xx information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
