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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 152007

Prius 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


- the contact has a 2006 Toyota Prius with a current odometer reading of 25,000 miles. The contact stated that the cruise control would not disengaged once it had been activated. Under normal dry weather conditions when using the cruise control at about 65 mph, and trying to stop the vehicle, it took at least half a mile before the brakes would deactivate the cruise control. After this incident the contact had the vehicle towed to the dealer, and they could not find anything wrong.
