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.

2003 Toyota MR2 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 282013

MR2 4-cyl

  • 67,800 miles


Purchased used from carmax and within 100 miles the transmission light came on, it would not shift out of first gear. I had it delivered to have the vehicle looked at, and it refused to go into reverse gear next. When they attempted to drive it only 1 St and 2nd gear would work. After having a brand new transmission installed from Toyota by aamco transmission as soon as the vehicle made it back to the car dealer, it started leaking fluids all over the lot. The transmission solenoid had quit working and starting spraying hot fluids all over the vehicle. It has been towed back for followup repairs and they are considering refunding due to excessive vehicle damage.
