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.

2007 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

I have a Toyota Prius 2007. I have 2 safety issues that I have complained to the dealer about but they are unable to fix so they ignored my concerns after realizing they could not fix the problem. First problem is the head lights. When driving at night the high beams do not shine on the road but shine into the trees. They say there is no adjustments for it. Also people think I am shining my high beams at them when I am not. They are just too high....also the headlights do no illuminate the sides of the car and road so when making turns at night you cannot see where you are turning. I have to approach turns very very slowly because I cannot see the roads when turning. Everyone that drives my car complains about this noticeable problem however Toyota wont address it because they say there is no adjustment. 2nd problem their slip differential. Whether there is snow on the ground or not when the tires start to slip they loose all power to the wheels. I have been in intersections when this has occurred and was almost hit. Even when trying to drive over the stop in the car wash...sometimes I am unable to power over the bump. I get stuck often. Again Toyota says this is a normal function of the car. Not something I would expect from a $24,000 car. Our values have plummeted and there is no recourse for it.
