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 smart key on my 2004 Toyota Prius locked the doors on its own, even while in the car. I unlocked the doors with the smart key, placed my baby in his carseat, buckled him in, placed his diaper bag on the floor in the backseat as always, with the smart key in a pocket of the diaper bag, and as I was closing the back door so that I could get in the driver seat, all of the doors locked on their own. The smart key was in the diaper bag inside the car, as was my baby, and I could not get into the car. I had to call my wife and have her bring the second smart key to unlock the door. Luckily my baby was not freaking out, and it was not a hot day. It was an extremely dangerous and scary situation.
