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 driver side sun visor falls down and blocks my view of the road. The visor will not stay in position. It is too heavy.

Drive side visor will not stay in position. When I want it down to block the sun from my eyes, it hangs in the middle and won't stay up against the window, impairing visibility.

Highlander 6-cyl

  • miles
Driver's side visor is broken and will not stay fully upright or fully down, it hangs midway blocking vision of traffic signals and upper field of vision, I have to hold the visor up with my hand to see traffic lights. I frequently bump my forehead into the visor when turning my head to look to the rear over my left shoulder as I am driving. I contacted my Toyota dealer, given a ballpark estimate of $300-500 to repair.

The sun visor on the rside will no longer stay up. It falls down and impedes vision. It will not stay up nor stay flush against the windshield either so it seriously blocks vision. It just keeps coming down and this can be dangerous while driving.
