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.

2009 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

When driving on I-355, many dashboard lights went up and car temperature is very high too. It is a brand new Toyota Corolla (<2000 miles). Had to tow it to the dealer and was told that a rodent chewed up ac and coolant tubes. Never heard of it. What a lousy design or parts that attract rodents.

Our 2007 Toyota Corolla has a failure in the air conditioning system. After the winter, the A/C was turned on and it would not cool. Freon was put into the system and it cooled down again. However, a hissing noise was coming from the car after putting in the freon. Turns out there is a leak in the air conditioner's condenser. The tsb on the 2003 - 3005 Corolla indicated there was a problem with the air conditioning system. Supposedly, Toyota corrected this problem on future Corolla's, but evidently there is still a problem with it. We are having the condenser replaced.
