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 the recall notice regarding the front passenger air bag and the recommendation that I not have a passenger in the front seat. I have been told Toyota does not have a remedy at this time, which I feel is unreasonable. I am disabled and have an anxiety disorder. This situation is making my condition worse and I feel that Toyota just doesn't care! how awful to send a notice to customers stating that the airbag is defective but there is no fix right now. I will never purchase another Toyota!

I'm quite concerned over my wife and others are having to sit in the rear seat of my 2006 Corolla for the next four to six or more months prior to the situation being remedied. Even sitting in the rear seat could still result in injury due to flying debris, as well as being tightly quartered. I do not feel you are seriously remedying the airbag situation in a timely manner. My car has only 50,000 miles on it and should be able to provide safe service to my family.

Passenger side airbag deployment can cause fatality. This is a nine (9) year old car. The replacement part may be three (3) years away, when the car will be twelve (12) years old. Interim options of either disabling the airbag or not sitting in the passenger seat are very poor solutions. If Toyota can hold out long enough all defective cars will be off the road and no repairs will be necessary. This outcome is very bad, the resolution is not adequate. Disappointed to realize that car owner and passenger safety is not a priority concern for NHTSA, but rather the Focus seems to be on maintaining happy car manufacturers. A proper resolution would be to repair the car in September 2015.

Toyota was supposed to replace the rusted wheels but it appears they either just repainted them or replaced them with another defective wheel. The wheels are rusting excessively. I received a recall notice advising me that my passenger side airbag was on recall list but part is not available at this time no mention was made of the driver side or side impact airbags. When I telephoned Toyota, I was told by Toyota that no recall was being issued for driver side or side impact airbags. This car has had surge issues, rusted wheels, tires 6 and 8 years old at time car was purchased as a brand new vehicle, now shrapnel danger from airbags with no recall. I put 8500 miles on car first year I owned it. Then surge occurred and now it only has 14500 miles since I am afraid to drive it. Toyota wants me to give it to dealer to hold until it is repaired. No guarantee re damage due to car sitting on dealers lot for months I.e. rusted brakes, engine, etc from sitting unused for months. This is ridiculous. Toyota should be made to take back this vehicle and replace it with new Corolla. I bought it new since I was retiring and now retired and can not afford new car. So I am stuck with it and can not drive it or enjoy my retirement or visit relatives since I can not drive car on highway. It is not safe to drive.
