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.

Around 250-300 miles I went over a dip in the road at about 40 mph and went to hit the brakes while taking a turn that was approaching a stoplight when the brakes would not let me push them down and would give me feedback as if ABS was active. After a couple seconds I was able to reapply pressure to the brakes to stop. This happened a total of eight times in 2,100 miles. The car has been in some close calls, and all the incidents happened after hitting a dip while trying to reduce my speed from over 50 mph to the time of hitting the dips. It feels like ABS is activating, and in turn not allowing me to apply pressure to the brakes. Another incident happened as I was going down the freeway approaching traffic and I went over a dip on the freeway and the brakes would not allow me to stop for about a couple of seconds. I regained brakes with enough time to make a stop, but I would say it was a safe stop. I had another incident where the brakes failed as I was exiting a freeway and I would not apply my brakes for the first turn, and I could only apply pressure to the brakes after I started to enter the second turn coming within inches of colliding the car in front of me. These near accidents were enough for me to report it to Toyota. After bringing it to Toyota, they tested the car for 15 miles and told me it was functioning as it was engineered to. I am positive that this car is not safe to drive. I bought it on 5/23/11 with 10 miles on it, and drove it a total of 2,150 miles.
