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 notice of an airbag safety recall notice in mid-August 2015 with instruction to "not operate the vehicle with an occupant in the front passender seat". it has been two months and with a call into my local dealer and national Toyota I am told they are still not even working on the 05-07 Corolla airbags in my state. Toyota is failing to remedy this defect in my car within a reasonable amount of time.

My father ([xxx]) was killed on Sunday, October 11, 2015 in a head on collision. He was wearing his seat belt, swerved away from the driver, and was in perfect health. We are suspicious that the takata airbag in the car may be the cause of death. At this time we are waiting for the coroners report and the autopsy results. I am his daughter, [xxx], and can be reached at [xxx]. information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)....updated 10/29/15 updated 11/03/15.

My car is part of the airbag recall and I am submitting this complaint due to the prolonged amount of time the manufacturer is taking to remedy the problem. It is totally unacceptable that there isn't even any information about an approximate timeline for a fix. Rental cars with functioning passenger seats should be issued to all effected if this is not fixed soon.

So far....nothing has occurred, however a known fact is more than a nuisance....not being able to use one's front passenger seat. I either do not carry passengers at all...or must insist they sit in the rear with me as chauffeur....I can imagine the scope of this issue, however I feel Toyota is taking much too long in getting customers to the next step of replacing the airbag.
