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.

Complaint is in regard to the Toyota Prius navigational system. It has a gps system, but entries are blocked unless the car is stationary. I drive our nation's major highways and have to pull over to the shoulder to make an entry (nearest restaurant, hotel, tourist attraction, etc.). an officer pulled over and said that my constant pulling over is creating a safety hazard. I've seen other cars pulling over and stopped to talk to them and they are also trying to enter something in a Toyota vehicle gps. I agree that blocking the driving from entering into the gps is a prudent safety feature. But in all the cases I described, it was the passenger who was doing the navigation. I've read on the internet that a large number of people are trying to cut into the wiring of the car or change it's program by hacking into the service screens. All of these create potential safety hazards. Toyota is the only auto manufacturer who forces the customer to have a stationary car, leading to all these problems. I suggest that this safety block provides a way for customers to bypass it to avoid these problems I am seeing. This is a growing problem affecting more and more cars. When collisions and deaths occur, it won't be clear to the investigators what caused it. If you can pursue this at the warning stage, perhaps we can avoid deaths and accidents before they occur.
