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 notice from Toyota stating that I need a new passenger air bag immediately. I contacted Toyota of tampa bay on 7/22/2015 and was told they were out of stock, but would order me one for my particular VIN # so that I would be able to have one installed as soon as possible. I have contacted Toyota of tampa bay several times since then and keep being I told I will be called back and never receive a call back. The recall notice states that it is not safe to drive the vehicle, but I can't get Toyota to correct the issue. My most recent call to Toyota of tampa bay was this afternoon on 9/5/2015.

I have received a recall for my car due to safety issue with the passenger air bag. The recall (NHTSA id 15V285) states that in case of an accident, the passenger might be subjected to metals through the air bag that can cause serious injury or death. I have been trying to contact the dealer in my area but with no success. Today, we are almost three months after the recall has been initiated. A non-logical solution has been proposed which is not to occupy the passengers seat. I agree that there is no injury till the date of today, but we won't wait until an accident happens to see the results. I am requesting the following: 1) the dealer has to replace the air-bag with a safe one within two week of today (09/03/2015). I can't keep the passenger seat unoccupied more than this time. The car was bought to serve a driver, a passenger, and occupants in the back seat. The manufacturer and the dealer has to take their responsibility for any manufacturing error. 2) in case the repair was not done within 2 weeks, I am requesting that the dealer provide me with a replacement car, free of charge and with insurance, until the repair parts are ready and the repair is done. 3) a third option is that I might consider trading my car for a 2011-2013 Toyota rav 4 with a payment of $4,000. This seems a reasonable solution due to the risk my family and myself are subjected due to the above manufacturing error.

I am very concerned that Honda has resolved the airbag issue in my 2003 vehicle in a very timely fashion and Toyota has not. In addition I am incurring added carpool costs of not using the passenger side seat due to being advised by Toyota not to have passengers in the front passenger seat.
