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.

2008 Prius hid headlights failing. Starting at around 48,000 miles. Can't they make a headlight for about $20 instead of even the $150 that they want just for the bulb. Toyota should at least offer free labor to replace the bulb. Can't believe they can't make a cheaper bulb that should last about the lifetime of the car.

This pertains to any hybrid vehicle. While walking past one in a mall parking lot, the driver started to back out. Since the engine does not engage at this speed, there is no audible warning to pedestrians and if the driver is not paying enough attention, the pedestrian could be injured.
