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 have been told that it may take up to 10 weeks before the parts are available to repair my airbag. In the meantime I am driving a vehicle which may kill my passenger if the airbag is used. Toyota will not pay for a rental to prevent a injury or death during the ten weeks before this vehicle is repaired and they are telling me to have people sit in the back seat. They are playing with peoples lives while waiting for this to be repaired.

Takata recall. Last year I received a letter saying that my Corolla had a recall for airbags. I took my car to frank Toyota in in national city California. They told me they didn't have the parts and that I would receive notice when they did. On March 21 of this year I received a letter from Toyota saying that Toyota had completed parts preparation in my area and to take it to any dealer as soon as possible. I called frank Toyota on the 21st. After being on hold for several minutes they told me they did not have the parts for my car and it would take 2 to 3 weeks. I immediately called chula vista Toyota on main street and talk to javier. He told me to bring in my car anytime and they would fix it. I took it in today Saturday, March 26 and it was completed.

Takata recall - I have a safety recall notice for the front passenger airbag inflator module, telling me that I will be contacted when the "sufficient parts have been produced and the remedy can be performed." This letter is about a year old. I want to know why I have never been contacted and/or why this problem has not been addressed. This is unacceptable, and frankly a crime it itself. The letter goes on to say, "until the remedy becomes available in your location, we recommend that you do not operate the vehicle with an occupant in the front passenger seat." Thus I have no ability to use this car for transporting my family due to the fact that this air bag could potentially kill the front seat passenger... I would like an explanation as to why I continue to be inconvenienced by a recall that is not being addressed.

Takata recall - I received the recall notice for my vehicle and immediately called my Toyota dealer to schedule an appointment for the repair to be made. The service manager told me it would be about 8 weeks until they could fix it. I asked why so long, and he informed me that Toyota will only and then one part per week. I cannot believe that what seems to be a serious safety issue, is not being treated as such. I would like to know why is Toyota doing this, potentially risking the lives of how many tens of thousands of people, in an effort to do what, save a buck? I would greatly appreciate an answer. Thank you, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
