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

Apr 262006

Prius 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles


Bulges have appeared in the sidewalls of two of the four Goodyear potenza tires on our 2005 Toyota Prius. I can provide photos. The tires were maintained by having them rotated and pressure checked at 5,000-mile intervals by the Toyota dealer. The car has been driven only on paved streets and roads. Current mileage on the car is 13,000. I have elected to replace all four tires with michelins.
