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.

Tire indicator light comes on after driving 20 -40 miles. Replaced front passenger tire in January 2010 to see if that remedied situation though did not. Dealership has evaluated car three times before installing new sensors. After new sensors replaced February 2010, tire indicator light resumes to light March 2010 vehicle seen yesterday at dealership, dealership states all tires at 20 pounds, readjusted to 32. Dealership states someone is tampering with tire pressure though due to my situation I have only allowed the dealership to look at my vehicle as it is under warranty. Light comes on again 3/12/10. Notified dealership of light malfunction again.

I ordered a newly-designed 2009 Toyota Corolla xle from a local dealership. It arrived in August, 2009. The dealership had no xle models on the lot, so a test drive was not possible. After the car arrived, I noticed that the car was pulling independently on the road to the left without just cause. I thought maybe I should have the dealership check the tires/steering/ or alignment on my next visit. As the weather became more rainy in the fall, I noticed that the car kept feeling as though it was not holding the road safely-- particularly at turnpike speed. I live relatively close to the elementary school where I teach, so I do not have to usually drive the turnpike, but when I did--the car 's steering or tires ?? felt out of control. Then I noticed that the tire sensor came on and I saw that I had a flat tire when I was at school. The dealership came and towed the car in to the shop. They patched it. I thought maybe that would correct the problem, but the sensor kept coming on and going off. I went back to the dealership, explaining the car was pulling to the left and I thought maybe the steering or tires were not working. They worked on it again and I bought a new tire from the dealership and they balanced, aligned, etc. And I paid for it. Then it snowed and I noticed that the slightest amount of snow increased the unsafe feeling of not having steering control. I have tires that are Bridgestone/turanza tires that are rated M/S that came with the car plus the new tire they replaced is the same kind. Please know that we have owned another Toyota for 12 years and nothing like this happened. I am scared to drive this car. I feel unsafe.
