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.

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.

Today, I received a recall notice on this car for the front passenger airbag inflator model. The notice said that no remedy was yet available. I called the Toyota dealer and they verified this and said they did not know when a remedy would be available. The notice advises that nobody should sit on the passenger side of the car until the inflator module is replaced. Injuries and death have occurred when the airbag improperly deploys. This makes it difficult for my wife and I to drive the car without fear for our safety, my other car is a 2004 Honda civic which has also been recalled for, first, the passenger side airbag inflator module and, then, for the airbag inflator module on the driver's side. I've been waiting 4 months for the dealer to get the replacement parts for the driver's side, since the airbags for both cars seem to have been manufactured by takata, it seems to me likely that the Toyota will also, some day, be recalled again for the front airbag inflator module. I am complaining because it seems to me obvious that I have been driving 2 unsafe cars since the time I purchased them. Considering the danger of injury or death, it does not seem to me that the recalls are not being handled by Toyota or Honda in a timely manner with proper concern for the safety of the drivers and passengers of these cars. Honda did finally respond by replacing the passenger side module in April of this year, at the same time telling me I would have to wait indefinitely to replace the driver's side module. Finally, I am scheduled to have the driver's side replaced on Sept. 3. Toyota can give me no date for the replacement of the passengers side and assures me that the driver's side is ok. I am doubtful.

I am writing this complaint because my car is being recalled due to defective front passenger air bag. The dealer and official Toyota website cannot tell me when this defect can be repaired. My car is not the 1st wave of recalls. I am planning on moving long distance in the next few months to Colorado, so can I get my car fixed at a Toyota dealer there for free? I didn't see anything on the websites that included this question. Please let me know. By the way, I am filing an official complaint that the information regarding timing for the fixes is not available.

Dear NHTSA, today we received an interim recall notice on our 2007 Toyota Corolla instructing us not to drive the car with a front passenger. I contacted Toyota to explain that we purchased this car specifically for my 16 year old daughter who currently has her Ohio temporary drivers license. Per this interim letter, Toyota is telling us that she cannot drive this car we purchased specifically for her. Ohio temporary driver licenses require a licensed front passenger. I was given Toyota case #1508103451 by the Toyota representative. I requested one of the initial recall repair appointments available. The Toyota representative refused, and advised me to call a local Toyota dealership to get on an initial call back list. I called metro Toyota in cleveland, Ohio at 888.439.0914. The service representative advised me that they are not making appointments or taking phone numbers for Toyota call back appointments. The metro Toyota service representative also advised it may be two months to two years before they receive parts for the takata passenger side airbag recall replacements. I am extremely disappointed in both Toyota corporate usa and metro Toyota. Both parties appeared to be unconcerned with rendering my 2007 Corolla useless for my daughter to drive for possibly two years. I believe Toyota needs to step to the plate and offer us a replacement vehicle in safe non-recall condition in exchange for our 2007 Corolla if they cannot provide us with a timely recall repair. My daughter needs a vehicle to drive. Best regards.

The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic, who provided body repairs but no diagnosis to explain the air bag failure. The contact experienced a second crash while at a stop light. Another vehicle crashed into the drivers side of the contact's vehicle and the air bags did not deploy. The vehicle was repaired by a repair shop for the body repairs, but the air bag failure was not diagnosed. A police report was filed. The contact sustained whiplash and received further medical treatment. A police report was filed. The contact mentioned that a third crash happened when a driver was bringing the vehicle back to the contacts residence, lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree as well as a telephone pole. The driver sustained head injuries and the drivers head went thru the windshield. The driver did not receive further medical attention. The air bags did not deploy. The vehicle was destroyed.

We received a recall notice on our Corolla today stating that the air bag may deploy and cause the inflator to rupture, potentially causing serious injury or death to the vehicle occupants. However, according to the recall, we do not live in a priority geographic location to receive an immediate repair and will have to wait until enough parts are available. Toyota's suggestion in the meantime is to have no one to sit in the passenger seat. We have been advised to file a complaint if we believe that Toyota has failed to remedy that effect within a reasonable time. Our family does not own an additional vehicle that will accommodate our family, so we feel this is an unreasonable alternative for Toyota to offer (to merely have someone not sit in the passenger's seat.) we are dumbfounded that Toyota would send a recall advising us of this potentially life threatening issue with no solution for their customers all over the country. We are now forced to potentially endanger the life of someone in our family as we have no other vehicle that will fit our family.
