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.

Check engine light came on and read P1349. Variable Valve Timing (VVT) system due to blocked oil control valve filter. But expensive to get to due to engine brace directly in front of the cap which is recessed allen or torx nut (can't remember) Never-the-less, kept up with service intervals. Never going to buy another Toyota product (Subaru, Lexus, Scion etc. or any other joint venture) again.
