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.

I received a safety recall note on the mail informing me of an air bag recall on the Toyota Corolla I drive, where they strongly recommend to fix it immediately and not to drive the car on those conditions. The solution to the problem on the note stated that any authorized Toyota dealer will replace the part at no charge. I contacted arlington Toyota dealer in jacksonville Florida where they took my information and was told someone was going to call me back and never did. After a few weeks I decided to call them back and they told me the part is in back order and they don't know when they will get it. They were rude and not interested in fixing the problem at all. I decided to call another dealer in the area, coggins Toyota at the avenues in jacksonville Florida, and they took my information again and told me my part will arrived in two weeks. After waiting a month for them to call me, I decided to call them back where a customer service representative told me they don't have a solution to the problem, and I could wait several years before the part gets there. I found it unacceptable that after getting a serious recall note on the mail where they state the problem should be fix immediately, and there is the potential of a serious injury or death, nothing can get done. I need to drive my car and it is very scary I could potentially put myself or my family in danger every time I do. The recall states that there is a potential for the intrusion of moisture over time in the air bag. Living in Florida and having an old car increase the chances of that to happens. Not driving the car is not a solution. If they are not willing to fix the problem and recommend not to drive the car, they should give a car rental at no charge to people with this problem until they fix it.

The local dealer, hoffman Toyota in West simsbury, ct was contacted over 2 months ago about my defective airbag. They said they would order the part and it would be ready in 2 weeks. I have called twice and they have told me they still do not have the part and that I should not drive the car until it is repaired. They told me not to call them, they would call me when the part has arrived, but they could not tell me when to expect the part. In the meantime, the car has not been driven.

Corporate gave me a claim # to take to my dealership to get a "loaner" at no charge until the passenger airbag is replaced.. 3 dealerships said it was a rental at no charge, not a loaner, and needed my credit card #. I refused since we both have insurance. No other options were offered other than "do not use the passenger side". it's been 3 months since I received an interim recall notice. I have a family and cannot use my car to full capacity.

Approximately 3 months ago I received a recall stating that due to the possibility of shrapnel, I cannot have a passenger in my front passenger seat. After calls to the dealer, and also Toyota customer service, I have received no information as to when the will be able to fix the situation. Although I am lucky that my spouse has their own vehicle that we are now relying on, there are many people who may not and may risk injuring themselves/loved ones by having someone in the passenger seat when the airbag goes off and potential has shrapnel.
