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.

Stationary/parked driver's seat - an internal structure of the seat has broken, allowing a sharp, rigid steel piece to protrude from the back of the seat into the passenger area. This piece of steel has cut two of our children on the legs as they were exiting the vehicle. (one injury occurred in June 2016, Toyota notified of problem in July 2016. Second injury occurred on 11/11/2016. Toyota again notified.)

Takata recall, got recall info, took the car to Toyota, no solution to problem. They said they had no problems. It was an interim call. Meantime, do not allow anyone in front passenger seat.. so I feel like I am just standing in line, paying for something I cannot fully use. Where is the fix to the problem?? in the meantime, I am driving my unsafe car, as shrapnel can explode at anytime, and go anywhere. I need help here. I am a safe driver, what about the other guy. I live in Florida, and fit right into the recall notice, however Toyota seems not to be able to anything about it. I am upset, I am paying on a car that I can only use a small portion of. And still not feel safe. I love my car, I want to keep it. But it seems like I bought a four bedroom house that maybe will only hold one.

Defective leather seat heaters disconnected without compensation or replacement. Replecement was not or is not an option under recall #set168. What good are leather seats without heaters?

On 11/23/2011, I bought a 2010 Toyota Corolla at sterling mccall Toyota. Unfortunately, the vehicle was inadequate because of a hidden defect in the design and construction of the driver's front seat. I am disappointed and concerned because the way the seat was designed and/ or constructed places a metal bar to be compressed against the spinal column. The location of this metal bar lowers the protection of the occupant's physical safety and places the driver at a higher risk for lumbar vertebrae injury.
