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.

Rust. Unusual rust everywhere in my 2007 Fj cruiser. Even the front motor mounts are rusted. The rear bumper inside, frame, rear differential everything is extremely rusted. Even the trailer light plugs are falling off due to rust. This is a city car and we don't take it to offroad, and being only 74000 miles, it's scary to look under. If gives the feeling that one day wheels may fall off from the frame. I have searched in the internet and realized that most Fj cruiser owners have same issue. We paid 30+ thousand for a car which is falling apart with rust in 7 years. Hope something can be done.

I was driving approximately at 30 miles per hour, in a residential street, when suddenly I heard a noise and noted that the windshield developed a five inch crack, starting from the bottom center going up. A few days later, the crack moved significantly, to the left and right of the windshield moving to cover the entire windshield. There was no prior damage to the windshield, the vehicle has never been in an accident and it has never been taken off road. The crack seems to have developed due to pressure stress- a defect from manufacturing. There are numerous other reports from other owners of this type of vehicle with similar reports, often times, even after having the windshield replaced. This is a safety concern and manufacturing error.

I own a 2007 Toyota Fj cruiser sport utility vehicle. I've owned the vehicle for 24 months and currently have 16,000 miles driven. The safety problem is the design of the Fj cruiser windshield. I have now replaced the windshield six (6) times due to small rocks hitting the windshield. The safety issue is that the vertical position of this windshield absorbs the full impact of any road debris as opposed to deflecting. Of the six windshield incidents, 2 of those have been severe enough to completely penetrate the windshield and in to the passenger cabin. This poses a very serious safety issue if a rock should pierce the windshield on the drivers side and injure or distract the driver thus posing a safety risk to others in the vehicle or in close proximity. In addition, the impact is severe enough that the noise of the impact poses a dangerously high distraction. The impact is violent enough that I would equate the sound to exploding fireworks or a handgun sound in the cabin of the vehicle.
