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.

2009 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

problem #2

Prius 4-cyl

Driving and my left headlight spontaneously turned off. If is not burned out, as it was working when I left, and stopping and restarting the car turned it back on. Very dangerous as the road was dark, not to mention I don't want a traffic ticket. Please stop ignoring this problem.

While driving on several occasions either one head light will go out or on some occasions both headlights will go out. If I turn the lights off and then on they will come back on.
