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 car's passenger side tie rod was cracked, most likely since the day of manufacturing. The car spun around 180 degrees. The car rolled three times at 75 mph. Wife has memory problems as well as some physical and emotional problems. Toyota said that the car having lost the passengers side tie rod would have remained controllable. I don't believe that and I think Toyota is responsible for the accident.
