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.

1. while backing down a hill the brakes release and you free fall a few feet. Dealer brought out another vehicle to test it and this one did the same thing. Dealer contacted Toyota technical ops and they said this was as designed. 2. while braking the RPM jumps up as high as 1500 RPM causing the vehicle lurch forward.
