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.

Noticed exhaust was coming into cabin of car shortly after purchasing it brand new form dealership while driving, in park or at a traffic stop sign. Contacted dealership was advised by service manager that the smell was the coating on the exhaust used for anti corrosion purpose. Several months later took car into dealer ship, advised that I had exhaust coming into my car, dealership concurred and replaced exhaust system from exhaust manifold back to the muffler. Purchased carbon monoxide detector for car to verify that exhaust was coming into car w/carbon monoxide. Detector was reading at 25 ppm (parts per million) took car back again, still getting smell 2 weeks later. Dealer could not duplicate problem. Took it in again still getting exhaust in car ( inconsistently) does not duplicate this action every day. Dealer could not duplicate issue, wrote letter to Toyota mfg. On this issue as of late no action yet.
