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.

problem #1

Aug 162006

Prius 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,000 miles


On 8/16/06 I was driving to work in the morning and after about 15 minutes on the road I got a warning sound and light (triangle) on my dash and a headlight leveling indicator on the monitor. I had 61,000 miles (of course 1,000 miles over my extended warranty). I called the dealer to make sure this was not a problem and that I could get it looked at on my next visit in early Sept. They indicated it should be ok so I did. After diagnostics it turns out the auto headlight level had shorted out (not sure what that means) and it was going to cost about $650 to replace. I had to replace to get a safety inspection and this warning also impacted other automated checkout features with the system. This could be luck of the draw but I did some web checking and several folks have had this kind of problem so I am wondering if this is documented and hopefully in line for a recall.
