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.

Within six months my paint is starting to get patchy and disintegrate. The car is only 12 years old and has been regularly washed, polished and housed undercover. I have owned cars that have been much older and have never seen such paint disintegration, so I feel this was either a bad batch or just a very inadequate paint finish by Toyota. Naturally it is out of warranty, however I had not expected the paint to peel on a car I have had and taken care of since new.
