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.

Takata inflators (possible) the car was in an accident. My wife rear ended another vehicle and there was a good amount of front end damage. She was not sure about the exact speed. She was driving on interstate 95 in West haven ct in clear weather but fairly heavy traffic. The thinks the speed was between 25 to 35 mph. The damage it the front end was enough to declare the car a total loss. The damage went all the way to the engine block. Most of the airbags did deploy. The drivers side steering wheel and knee airbags deploy, however, they did not inflate. The side airbags and curtain airbags deployed but only some inflated or partial inflated. I spoke to the dealership where I purchased the vehicle and they said it was strange. So I reported it to Toyota and they are going to inspect the vehicle. During my initial conversations with Toyota corporate office they too said it does not seem correct. They are going to inspect the care with a week. I am not sure what to make of their inspection and I want to make sure they are fair. Luckily no one was hurt in the accident. But I do think the issue needs to be looked at. The car is currently at a body-shop but the insurance company will be taking possession for salvage.

My airbags are no longer working in my 2014 Toyota Corolla and want some sanders. I have last than 60K miles on this car. The dealership is telling me my VIN number is on the list with www.NHTSA.gov as well as the dealership. There are other website that indicates their problems with Toyota vehicle with the airbag frontal sensor control module. Fix this complaint for me, because if I'm in accident wig no airbags I'm died.

The Corolla moving at about 35 mph on a 3 lane road hit another car that was stopped at a yellow blinking light in the rear, the Corolla's impact was on the left front side first so on a slight angle to the rear of the stopped car so it did not hit squarely. The seat belt did not function and the female driver of the Corolla hit her head on the window and her right knee hit the under dash, her weight is about 110 lbs. And small body frame. The air bags also did not function there is around $9000 damage to the car so this was not just a small collision. I have attached a pdf file with photos.

As I was driving around a curved street, my steering wheel locks on me. I could not swerve and turn my car to follow the curved street. I could not move the wheel at all. My car ran into a tree head first. All the airbags deployed and smoke appeared. My entire car was totaled and smashed in the front. Scariest thing because I had no control. Thank god, my 1 year old son was not in the backseat or else he would have been fatally injured with those airbags. I need to know what can be done. Toyota has had recalls in the past and this could have ended my life.

I was making a right turn pulling into a parking space in a shopping mall. I was approximately 1/2 to 3/4 of the way in when the vehicle took off and went into a tree and then a wall. I would guess the vehicle traveled approximately 40 feet after the sudden and unintended acceleration. This definitely was sudden and unintended acceleration. The front end of the vehicle was damaged by the tree and the wall the air bag did not deploy.

On May 6, 2014, my wife [xxx] and I were driving home to wlliston, Vermont from arlington, Vermont. We were driving North at approximately 45 mph in our 2014 Toyota Corolla le. At the blinking light intersection of dorset street and cheese factory road, we made a right hand turn and drove East. It was a very dark night and I mis-judged the distance to the end of cheese factory road, where you could either turn left or right. At the intersection of cheese factory road and hinesburg road, there are no blinking lights or reflectors, and, in the darkness, I missed the stop sign, went straight through the intersection and crashed into a ditch on the other side of the road. Upon impact, my air bags deployed, and I felt only a sharp pain in my lower back. Immediately getting out of the car, I moved to the passenger side to find my wife out of the car on her hands and knees, crying out that she was unable to breathe. In the hospital [xxx] was diagnosed with a cracked sternum, an L 1 compression fracture in her back, 3 broken ribs and a broken left wrist. She spent 9 days in icu. It has only been in the last few weeks that my wife and I have had an in-depth discussion of the accident. [xxx] says that her seat belt did not hold her back, and that her chest hit the dash before her air bag deployed; yet, at impact she was able to see that my air bag had deployed before hers. This would probably account for the severity of her injuries and for the relatively minor injuries for mine. We are now aware that the 2013 Toyota Corolla had airbag issues and wonder if our 2014 Toyota Corolla might have similar problems. We have also been told by medical personnel that tremendous force would be required to crack a sternum, the kind of force that would come from hitting the dash board. For these reasons we are filing a claim. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
