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

This is a complaint about souter's in barstow, California, not honoring the recall notice on 2004-2006 Toyota Prius steering intermediate shaft replacement. I took it in when I got the first notice and since I have to use hand controls to drive I have these controls installed in this Prius. Soutar's said they would not work on the defect unless the controls were removed. Or they would call a technician to come up from la to remove the controls and I would have to pay. It would have cost too much. They said they were sorry.
