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.

Narrative description. Not a failure but a safety prevention measure 2010 Toyota Prius 1. event: When backing up the vehicle runs on battery power-hence it is silent when backing up. The vehicle in busy parking lots (walmart) goes unnoticed. 2. failure: I have surprised people who are distracted and don't notice me until they nearly walk into the side of the vehicle. They don't hear the car. 3. failure correction: A back-up warning device should be installed to alert pedestrians (blind folks, neighborhood kids, pets, etc) of a silent, backward moving vehicle approaching. There is several blind spots inherent to the Prius when backing. Helping others to notice you seems like "an ounce of protection that is a pound of cure" that is measured in a saved life or crippling injury.
