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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The Toyota Matrix is the mechanical twin of the Pontiac Vibe.

Both models were a joint GM-Toyota venture, manufactured together at a NUMMI production facility in Fremont, CA. Only the heating & A/C systems are different.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO TOYOTA OF GREENVILLE FOR SAFETY RECALL AND WHEN WE GOT VEH BACK THE AIRBAG LIGHT WOULD NOT GO OFF AND HORN WOULD NOT WORK. THE LIGHTS ON DASH PANEL DO NOT WORK ALSO, I CAN'T SEE MILEAGE GUAGE NOR GAS GUAGE. I WENT BACK TO TOYOTA OF GREENVILLE ON 4/27/15 AFTER COMPLAING TO CUSTOMER SVC AND THEY DISASSEMBLED THE STEERING COLUMN AND ADVISED ME THAT A PART WAS BROKEN AND ACCUSED ME OF HAVING SOMEONE ELSE WORK ON VEH. THEY REFUSED TO ADDRESS MY PROBLEM AND I ADVISED THEM TO JUST PUT PARTS BACK TOGETHER AND THEY THEN DISCONNECTED AIRBAG SENSOR ON DRIVER'S SIDE. THEY GAVE ME THE BROKEN PART AND NOW I'M DRIVING WITHOUT A AIRBAG ON DRIVER'S SIDE AND I FEEL MY VEH IS UNSAFE. MY VEH WAS BROKEN AT TOYOTA OF GREENVILLE DURING THE INITIAL RECALL WORK.
