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.

Air bags did not go off in a hard collision with a deer. Covering of bumper gone, hood bent 18"+-, radiator pushed into engine, frame bent on driver's side in front of the door. Car not driveable and yet the air bags did not deploy. State farm has the car policy 182 5776-C28-23A. Police report bec icr 16-17141, blue earth county, mn state farm claim 23-0177-0W2. This vehicle has been owned by family members since purchased new. Our concern is that the air bag did not go off and it possibly was unhooked.

It is in some way unbalace at every stop. But they said this is how it is since I boug it.

Takata recall- we received the notice for the recall and called our local Toyota dealer. They informed us that we would be contacted when parts came in. A few months later, we received a notice indicating that parts had been manufactured for our location. We called again and were told that they didn't have the parts and that a supervisor would call us back. We never received a call back. We called back again a few months later and were told the same exact thing, including that we would get a call back from the supervisor. We received no call back. We called one last time (after battling with this for over a year), and were told the exact same thing. We even said, "can you please make sure he actually calls us back this time? we have been promised many calls back before and never gotten them." Well, no call back! in the meantime, we have to avoid traveling with passengers which is a massive inconvenience, especially with two busy children. We had this same recall with our Honda and it was completely solved within 6 months.

Takata recall. Failure to remedy defect within a reasonable time. Awaiting replacement for over one year now and avoiding use of passenger seat is an undue burden. When passenger seat is used passenger is placed at unnecessary risk. Was on waiting list in Vermont for several months but have now moved to New York. My time on the waiting list is now reset and will be another 3 or more months.
