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.

Was notified over a year ago about recall. Never rec'd word from Toyota about part being available. Called last month and part was ordered. Rec'd another letter from Toyota stating same problem. Called newark Toyota about status of part ordered. Still on waiting list. No explanation why this is taking so long. Called corporate. Apparently parts are backordered and nothing being sent to dealership. Apparently they are still using the same manufacturer for the module that supplied all the faulty vehicles. Why!!! it seems that they really are not taking this very seriously. Why aren't we offered loaner or rental cars as in the case of Honda who has the same problem" how many lives are expendable before something is done to remedy the situation. I see that there are over seven million repairs so far. When will my car be fixed"

Takata recall. I was informed by Toyota on 8/10/15 about the takata recall. I was not able to get the recall fixed on my car until 4/11/16 due to the "unavailability of replacement parts." I had to use the car for 8 months without letting anyone sit in the front passenger seat! I was not able to car pool to work and this really put a damper on my ability to reasonably Transport my family, friends and co-workers. The time it took to replace the defective parts is completely unacceptable!

Takata inflator: Received letter recommending urgent safety recall. Parts were supposedly ordered 3/21/16. As of today, 4/8/16, parts are "backorder" with no timeframe. Spoke to "jennifer" at Toyota repair shop. This is unacceptable. I frequently have passengers in my car, as I take friends to doctor appointments. Please advise....by the way, the letter states that Toyota has the parts available for my geographic region. So why are the parts not available? I called as soon as I received the letter.

Takata recall after I received the first recall letter from Toyota it said remedy was not available and I would receive another followup letter when available. I never received one. I called the dealer on 11-5-15 to follow up and they said no parts were available yet.. I call 4-4-16 and was told the part was available and to get it fixed my options were leave the care for 4-6 hours and rent a car or have a possibility of waiting for their shuttle that has a 10 mile limit. I don't feel I should have to pay for a rental or miss work to have this repair done. The dealer told me to contact Toyota corporate which I did. I was initially told that, yes, retntals were supposed to be suppled and they had me talk with a person at the next level to hopefully work it out. I was told by this level person that they only supplied rentals for people who requested them prior to a remedy and parts available. I confirmed that they would have paid for a rental for a few months but won't pay for one for one day" they said that was correct.. I cannot afford a rental car or taking tie off work to get this fixed. Do I have any recourse"
