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.

2012 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

Corolla 4-cyl

  • 320 miles


Vehicle steering has poor on-center feel. When vehicle is driven over 30 mph, the wheel can be turned an inch right or left of center and it will not return. This results in additional driver fatigue from steering corrections to overcome the dead spot near center. Bright colored and chrome trim panels near gear shift console cause distracting glare under bright sunny conditions.

(1) 2012 Toyota Corolla, 4 doors,4 cylinder. When you drive the car at a speed of 65 mph or higher the car's steering wheel always steer to the left side and you always have to handle firmly all the time. (2) when you roll the rear window all the way down, the back window, doesn't matter which one, you will get a loud vibration and this will hurt your ear drums or even can damage the ear drums.
