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.

2006 Toyota Prius. Consumer states unintended acceleration the consumer stated the vehicle was on cruise control, when the engine suddenly revved. He noticed the speed had increased from 72 mph to 74 mph. He released the cruise control and the engine stopped revving. He then set the cruise control again, and it happened again. The consumer also stated he noticed the lcd screen had froze and it was giving false information. The consumer has since sold the vehicle.

Impossible to read the dashboard on a bright day. Cannot determine speed-- this can be very dangerous- affects stopping distance and pedestrian safety.

All Toyota Prius vehicles since 2004-- cannot see the dash board during all bright, sunny days. Cannot see speedometer- do not know the speed of the vehicle. Very dangerous !!!!!!! at night, a wide green slash appears on the windshield at drivers eye level. Impairs night vision. Again, dangerous -impedes rivers ability to see properly.
