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'm really disappointed with Toyota that I haven't gotten a new passenger air bag yet! I have been waiting since June and it has been almost 6 months now that I've had to depend on other people to drive us places. I'd like to get a new passenger air bag asap otherwise I may never buy a Toyota again. Until this recall I've been happy with my Toyota, but this has changed things. I hope to hear from Toyota soon so that my passenger air bag can be replaced.

Takata recall. Toyota sent me a recall notice months ago, with the following text, "...we recommend that you do not operate the vehicle with an occupant in the front passenger seat." It also says (in red type), "we are currently preparing parts for your location; we will send you another notification once sufficient parts have been produced and the remedy can be performed." That recommendation is impossible to comply with, and Toyota has offered no other remedy. From what I read in the newspapers, these takata air bags are like a loaded gun pointed at the car occupants. Essentially, Toyota has done nothing for me, and has only attempted to guard its own ass in case my airbag explodes and injures someone. When one uses one's seat belts (which is always in this car) there is no need for air bags. To have an air bag that actually threatens the life of the occupants is totally unacceptable. I want this airbag removed, but the recall notification makes no mention of that as a possibility.

I believe that Toyota has failed to remedy the defect within a reasonable time. My front passenger air bag has been recalled since sometime this summer. I only have 1 car and 3 kids that I take to appointments, etc. I don't understand why if something is in recall, why parts are not readily available. Please contact me with an update. Thank you.
