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.

On 5/30/07 I picked up a 2007 Toyota Corolla ce..at the time of the test drive I did not notice this safety issue & perhaps it was due to the distraction of the sales person's constant talking.. since I am short I need to move the seat up forward to be comfortable when driving & to be able to see clearly, but once I move the seat forward & tilt the steering wheel so that I can drive comfortably & safely I cannot see all of the speedometer readings.. on the left I can see 0-20 mph & on the right I can see 90-110 mph anything in between is not at eye level & I cannot see the speedometer readings.. when I drive in order to see my speed I need to take my eyes off the road look down & under the top part of the steering wheel.. obviously this is extremely dangerous when doing 70 mph on a parkway which I needed to do & I consider it to be a safety issue with this Toyota.. I cannot believe that Toyota actually put this out on the market. How did this vehicle pass safety tests " also, on this exact same vehicle I have filed a complaint on the tires ODI # 10200011 which I am still having a serious safety problem with.. has Toyota sacrificed consumer safety for production & income " this is not my first new car but it has become a horrific experience for me and I am afraid that these vehicle problems will become my statistic.. communications with Toyota have been unsuccessful..
