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.

2010 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #5

  • 74,000 miles


Our 2010 Toyota Corolla xle with 74,000 miles experienced complete engine failure due to a defective fuel pump. We own and operate this car at about 1,000 feet (omaha Nebraska). My daughter drove this car North West towards the eisenhower edwin C. johnson memorial tunnel in Colorado and the engine completely shut down. Very little warning as the engine shuttered and came to a complete and unexpected stop in the middle of northbound traffic on highway 70. My daughter almost got hit by a couple of cars as she reattempted the climb towards the eisenhower edwin C. johnson memorial tunnel. But to no avail. She took this car to stevenson auto in lakewood Colorado for diagnosis, but they couldn't recreate the problem because they are allowed to drive only 20 miles or so and the car was towed 27 miles from highway 70 to their dealership (the closest Toyota dealer). They told my daughter to go back home to omaha Nebraska because there aren't any fuel pump problems at low altitude. Btw, the Toyota tsb is entitled "extended crank at altitude".

The vehicle suddenly turned off while I was making a right hand turn. I was able to start the engine immediately in neutral. This has occurred 4 more times in similar circumstances. However, last night, while turning the car wheel to the left and right rapidly to avoid an object on the street, the car lost power. All the warning and control lights in the instrument panel were turned on for 3 to 4 seconds but the car started on its own. That is, I did not have to turn the ignition key on as in previous 4 occasions. I made an appointment with the dealer for tomorrow morning.

The car seems to increase in speed even when applying the brakes. The electrical system is not functioning properly. The digital display radio seldom works, the anti skid control does not activate, the lights, both inside and out blink on and off, including headlights at night. The ac and heating unit cuts on and off. It seems as if the entire electrical system in the car is in need of repair.

Corolla 4-cyl

  • 51,000 miles
This vehicle uses a drive by wire (dwb) accelerator. When you press on the gas the car lurches forward. This happened on a rental car in 2010 and still is a problem on the used Toyota I purchased. When I contacted Toyota they stated there was no recall information. They asked me to have the vehicle diagonized at my expense, which I refused to do. This is a problem and based on information on the net others are having the same problem. I have owned many cars and not one has had such a touchy pedal.
