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.

problem #4

Corolla 4-cyl

  • 63,000 miles


I opened my trunk to place something inside and the trunk closed on me and hurt my back. This happened before and fortunately my granddaughter was able to stop it before it hit my back.this happens often when it is windy outside. The trunk never stays up and this can be very dangerous.

First, the trunk stopped opening from the inside. Also, the vsc off light, check engine light, and traction light all came on at the same time while I was driving and I have no idea why. The gas cap was on tightly, the fuel levels were right, there was no need for an oil change, and the car is only 2 1/2 years old in which I did not do any wreckless driving.

I notice that my trunk doesn't remain up after I open it. This is causing the hood to come down on my head. It is very dangerous. The other problem is that the driver's door opens out too far.
