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.

The foot rest assembly which is plastic and fastened to the floor board with protruding screws, snapped off while driving. The dangerous aspect of it, was that it slid towards the brake pedal and caused me to skillfully pull over the vehicle while sliding the part from under pedal with left foot. This could have been an extremely dangerous situation.

I attempted to submit my vehicle to the service department at Toyota of longview, in longview, Texas, in response to safety recall notice titled "certain 2008 through 2011 model year Fj cruiser vehicles equipped with trd accessory wheels and Toyota-recommended light truck tires." I requested the TPMS ECU be replaced, the cold tire inflation pressure be revised and a new tire/loading label installed. Toyota of longview refused to perform the recommended work unless I paid a $99 diagnostic fee. The recall notice stated these components will be replaced at no charge to me. I believe these components must be replaced notwithstanding the service department mechanic's opinion. Please advise on how to proceed.

Just bought a brand new Fj cruiser and within 2 months the windshield is cracked. In two places. They are impact but I have heard this is a very big problem with the SUVS.
