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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2007 Corolla. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2007 Corolla is that for months on end, the news media repeatedly told the public that several Toyota models have an unintended acceleration defect, & to go to safercar.gov (the NHTSA's website) to file a complaint.

So, the NHTSA received a disproportionate number of complaints about Toyota unintended acceleration issues because of the national news media attention, to the point where now the NHTSA data is unreliable taken in context with any other vehicle that did not receive national news attention.

CarComplaints.com typically receives more complaints per day about vehicles than the NHTSA does, but the news media did not repeatedly say "go to CarComplaints.com to report your Toyota acceleration problems" like they did about the NHTSA -- so although we have less complaint data than the NHTSA for the 2007 Corolla, our data for the Corolla is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Corolla's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

1- an undetectable event caused a small hole in the fuel line of a Toyota Corolla. The air in the garage where the car was parked overnight was permeated with the odor of gasoline, and introduced the real possibility of an explosion. 2- the failure is a weakness in the strength and durability of the fuel line of Toyota Corollas. The fuel line had a small puncture and filled the confined area with gasoline vapor. 3 - Toyota required a replacement of the fuel line and gas tank, claiming that a rodent chewed through the fuel line. The new gas tank has the same design flaws and weaknesses as the old gas tank and can easily be punctured. Fuel line problems have happened in more than one Toyota Corolla that the company has owned; one of which burst into flames. (these are to be the subjects of separate complaints.) that a rodent (or any other insignificant cause) may damage a fuel line in this way is a serious weakness that presents a clear danger to anyone owning and driving this car. Toyota customer service refused to acknowledge or escalate this as a problem to management. The Toyota dealer also refused to recognize this fire hazard as a problem and communicated that it should be accepted as normal. The damaged plastic fuel line is available.
