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 recently purchased a toyotal highlander which has a headrest problem - it is so large that it pushes the head of the person in the seat forward to the point it is very very uncomfortable - in my case very painful. Neither the dealer nor Toyota will help me with the problem. I am not the only one who is having a problem with the headrest - neighbors are and I have seen people driving highlanders without headrests, which are a safety issue. In my case it is definitely a safety problem - I was rear ended twice in a vehicle without a headrest and am suffering cervical spine problems as a result. We need help with this problem.

Unexplained acceleration in my 2003 Toyota landcriuser. Once in a parking lot almost pushing me into pedestrians while my foot was on the brake. Another time when making a turn and almost pushed me into a car - my foot was on the brake and I didn't have a foot on the accelerator. I heard you were loooking into this on a Camry - I have this also and it is a safety concern. I've called Toyota with no acknowledgement there is a known problem.
