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 am the sole driver for the Toyota Highlander. I never carry anything heavier than a set of golf clubs. Still I get about 18mpg combined (which is the same for the V6) I get better mileage from my V8 Volvo XC90 which is built like a tank. Save yourself a headache and buy a Ford or Kia. Not a fan of either, but I think the Koreans put a little bit more effort into their vehicles since they have matured in the American market.
