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 the un-availability of parts to remedy the air bag problem has already exceeded an excessive amount of time. We have received no notification as to when we may expect them to be shipped to our dealer. The recommendation not to operate the vehicle as is because Toyota is trying to insure our safety is utter nonsense. A far better course of action is to have the air bag(s) in question deactivated. I would like to be informed as to how I may have this accomplished.

Tokata recall in August 2015 Toyota informed me that my Corolla was part of the recall program to replace the airbags which were subject to spewing shrapnel when discharged. I went to the local dealer to get the replacement completed, showing them the notice I received. The dealer, smart Toyota (563.388.6880) informed me that the replacement parts were not available yet, and that I should receive another letter when the the parts were on hand and could be installed. I checked with them again on 9 October to learn whether the parts were available. I received the same answer as I did in August at my initial visit: The parts are not available yet and that I would receive a letter informing me when they were. Today is 24 December, and I still haven't received that letter. In the meantime, I am driving around in a car with airbags that could strafe me with shrapnel should I be in an accident. This is unacceptable response to a potentially life threatening defect. I feel that perhaps I should have the airbags removed or disabled until the replacement parts are available, and to rely on the safety belts for crash protection. What is the NHTSA position on this issue?

Toyota has failed to remedy the defect within a reasonable time. I received my letter/notice about the recall back in June/July and I still haven't heard anything about when I can actually take my car in to be serviced. This is a concern for me as this is my only car and what I used daily to take me to work & everywhere else in between. I do not want to risk my life or my passengers lives because Toyota has failed to replace this part.

Takata recall - it has been several months and still no resolution to the issue even though other cars have been resolved. I have a 5 month old child in the car and am unable to drive it due to trust issues with Toyota and the airbags. The remedy process pertaining to this issue is ridiculous, especially when the more expensive lines of vehicles (Lexus) have been resolved.
