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.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Prius. The contact stated that the vehicle was taken to a dealer to have four tires installed but after the repair the TPMS warning light intermittently illuminated. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer, who informed that the vehicle was damaged during the TPMS sensor installation and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. In addition, the contact stated that while parked, there was fire coming from the console to the rear seats. The fire department extinguished the fire and stated that the fire might be due to an electrical failure. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 200,000.

Prius 4-cyl

  • 40,000 miles
The Prius headlights turn off randomly while driving. Sometimes one, sometimes both. There is no pattern and they go back on when the on/off switch is activated. This has been going on since about 40,000 miles. The bulbs were removed and reset and the right side was fixed, the left side fails less frequently. This is a potentially dangerous situation since the dealer does not seem to be sure of the cause of this problem. The cost to replace the bulbs is over $400. There is no guarantee that this will fix the problem. The tires wear out very quickly; replaced original tires at 22,209 miles and now at 50,287 miles the second set has to be replaced. The tire pressure light goes on continuously, regardless of pressure.
