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 need my passenger side airbag safety recall situation addressed as soon as possible. We need and use our front passenger seat each and every day. That is how the family is structured. Please send parts for repair to be done as soon as possible. Does this aire bag problem effect the coolant fluid?

Regarding: The recall on the airbag (June of 2015 with a letter received in September) there is no solution except to "not use the passenger seat." I have no way to carry 5 passengers without endangering 1 person in the passenger seat. Toyota headquarters strung the call out then finally said I could have a loner but would only give his first name (vince.) but my local dealer, grossinger at 1561 N fremont Chicago il 60642 put me on hold. I had no response from leaving a message or E-mail. When I took my car in for service the service representative just said "call." When I called grossinger they told me that they don't provide loaners. When I called northside Toyota peter solber told me that there is a waiting list and he can't guarantee a car when I would need carry 5 passengers. He provided no other solution. As of 9/30/2015 there is no safe solution for carrying passengers.
