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

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The contact owns a 2010 Toyota Corolla. When the contact drove through a red light at 45 mph, the vehicle was struck abruptly on the driver side door by another vehicle. The vehicle was spun around, the contact was knocked unconscious and the side air bags did not deploy. The contact was transported to the hospital via ambulance due to a minor neck injury. A police report was filed. The vehicle was destroyed. The manufacturer provided an investigator to further inspect the failure. The investigator found that because there was not enough damage to the rocker panel and the B pillar, the air bag did not deploy. The manufacturer did not offer any further assistance. The VIN was not available. The failure and current mileage was 9,000.

While making a left-hand turn, my wife, driving our 2010 Toyota Corolla, was struck by a driver running a red light. The other driver (in a Volvo wagon) did not see the light, nor break, striking the Corolla on the driver's side door and wheel area at approx. 35-40 mph. The force of the impact was enough to crumple the Corolla's door and wheel area, leaving the car totaled. No airbags deployed, not even the side airbags, leaving my wife with a concussion from the accident. The 2010 Toyota Corolla was purchased new this past fall, had only 9,000 miles on it and had sustained no previous damage or accidents. The mechanics at the autoshop where the car was deemed totaled said that they had no clue as to why the airbags did not deploy. Since the car was new, I am wondering if there was a defect in the airbags that prevented them from going off.
