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.

2005 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 012008


  • 15,500 miles


I was involved in a off-set frontal collision in a 2005 Toyota Prius equipped with dual front air bags and side curtain air bags on July 1, 2008. None of the four air bag systems in this vehicle deployed upon impact. I was traveling approximately 35 mph and the other vehicle was going ~ 30-35 mph. The other driver involved was not injured, but I was taken by ambulance to the local er trauma center where I underwent over 11 hours in a neck collar and numerous ct scans, mris and several X-rays. Thankfully I was not seriously injured but still have neck, back, and abdominal pain from the crash. Prior to this accident, I had surgery on June 24, 2008 and was still recovering from the surgery. The auto accident has significantly affected the speed of my recovery.
