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.

Driver side visor will not stay up. It droops approximately 60 degrees when lower to block sun.

Highlander 6-cyl

  • 85,000 miles
I have a 2001 Highlander. The left visor keeps falling down from the weight of the visor. I was traveling on the highway at 65 mph when the visor fell in front of my eyes, causing me to swerve. This is a safety issue. There should be a recall on the visor.
