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.

Takata recall I received a recall notice and immediately brought my vehicle to the Toyota dealer on 3/29. They said they would call when they receive the parts. It is now 5/10 and I called because I hadn't heard from them. When I called they said the parts have been back ordered and they have no idea when they will come in. In the meantime, they remind me not to use my passenger seat. I feel frustrated that this problem will persist for an undisclosed amount of time.

I have have a letter directly from Toyota telling me about my airbag recall for my 2007 Toyota Corolla and how it should be replaced for free in a timely matter. I have been contacting the Toyota dealership multiple times to replace the recalled airbag for my car. I also went directly to the Toyota dealership and when I spoke to the managers, they spoke as if they did not know what I was talking about. For more than a year, I have gotten no response back from Toyota or the dealership on how to get my car fixed.

I bought the car in October with a recall notice that they would not work on. The only solution from Oct till April was to "not operate with passenger in the front seat" I am really disappointed with Toyota for taking so long to fix the problem knowing that people are going to ride in the front seat and that they may be at risk!!!!!! I just got it fixed by asking the dealer if the recall could be done yet. The notice came in the mail the next week. I have had other recalls on other vehicles never anything this important and there was never a delay once notified.
