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 2009 Toyota Prius. The contact stated that an extremely strong battery acid odor emitted inside of the vehicle through the vents. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for inspection. The technician was unable to determine the cause of failure and cleaned the entire upholstery in the vehicle; however the odor persisted. The manufacturer was not notified of the problem. The contact planned to take the vehicle back to the dealer. The approximate failure mileage was 29,000.
