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.

Takata recall according to my recall letter there is currently no solution and I will be notified when there is one. Meanwhile, the suggestion is that I not have anyone sit in the front passenger seat. This inhibits my life and driving habits greatly; particularly in Florida heat with no vents in the back seat.

Takata recall: How could this have a recall and your company is stalling to complete this recall when you are knowing that when driven we can get into a major fatal car accident with the airbags forcing pressure against our bodies and even can burn our face and moreso death can appear during this incident. I was so frightened to think I see the airbag 6 second light light up and blink driving on the highway. Thank the lord that nothing happened to cause an accident or a 36O turn multple crash on the rain, mudslide roads..

My air beg light come on and don't go away. I receive a letter from Toyota about air beg recall. They told me to go to local Toyota dealership and say they will fix it. I went there and they told they don't have the part and they will order it and told me to wait. Is been a year and they never call me back. I receive a second letter from Toyota about the same air beg recall and so L call the local dealership. They say the part is not available and tell me to wait. I don't think they doing anything about it. Because I'm driving down the road with a defects car, I'm constantly worry. I just want my car to be fix before is too late.
