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.

Seat belt are frayed and coming apart. I have contacted my local Toyota dealer as well as Toyota costumer service and was told the car is out of warranty and it is no longer their responsibility. They said they'd be happy to change the seat belts, and then handed me a hefty quote. Thanks Toyota, glad you care.
