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.

Rear seat belts must crossover each other to buckle. This involves the rear seat behind the driver and the middle rear seat. Dealer can not repair. Says it is a factory defect. Requested local dealership to submit a complaint to Toyota corporate offices. Turning the buckles opposite of design does not solve the problem. Consequently unable to safely seat belt two children in area behind the driver and middle rear seat.

I was involved in accident where I was T-boned on the driver side and pushed from the traffic lane onto sidewalk into telegram pole. The impact was so forceful that the driver side window exploded but was held together due to tine on window. Outside mirror shattered and glass came into car. I had seat belt on but somehow managed to bump my head on the windshield which was cracked. Suffered a mild concussion from ct scan. So from the front driver side, bumper and passenger side received extensive damage which made the car undrivable. During the course of the forceful hit and being pushed onto the sidewalk into the telegram pole, none of the air bags deployed. In this vehicle there are side curtain airbags which I feel should have deployed due to the impact of the other vehicle (1998 durango). Would like some research done before I take further civil action in regards to the defective air bags. The car has been totaled due to the extensive damage and the bending of the frame on the car.
