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.

I was driving down the road when the foot rest on the driver side came loose and got stuck under the brake pedal. It prevented me from being able to depress the brake and I had to use the emergency brake to slow down enough to reach down and clear the brake so I could stop.

Had vehicle lifted by Toyota and paid Toyota for this modification. Approx 10 month later I showing sign of fenders bulging and tearing. They had me sign a wavier that warranty may not cover modifications after accepting vehicle. Yet there having vehicles lifted and put on there lot to sell. I have talked to many others who have this problem some lifted some not. Also Toyota have a upgraded the parts to fix problem.which I have pictures of. The problem is frame flexes to much and rips in wrinkle zones on vehicle for frontal crashes. I uses vehicle for trail riding and hunting. And I also own 2 other 4X4 Ford, Jeep and have no body tearing on them.
