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.

Air bag recall - took my car in to kerry Toyota in florence ky and they said they did not have time to perform the recall fix that no one there could do it. I had made an appointment a few weeks in advance on their mobile site and specifically said I was bringing my car in for the recall fix.

There is a recall notice we received about a risk of spontaneous activation of curtain airbags and the potential for passenger injury. However, for several months I have been contacting various dealers to request the remedy and they say Toyota has filed to provide them with the parts to remedy the problem. It is very troubling to be aware of a recall while such delays occur in fixing it. Obviously, if my family were to experience injury due to this delay, we would definitely hold the manufacturer responsible.

Last year (by a letter not dated !) Toyota motor sales usa mailed us a safety recall notice "interim notice" regarding the curtain shield air bags and since then the Toyota dealer did not contacted us to install the retention brackets designed to prevent the inflator chambers from entering the car interior. When will the remedy be available ? if it is available can we be contacted as soon as possible by the dealer (jim coleman Toyota, 10400 auto Park Avenue. Bethesda, md 20817). Thank you

Toyota has not remedied this known issue in a reasonable amount of time. I, the consumer, owner, and operator of the vehicle is continued at risk while and until Toyota prepares the remedy parts. Time to remedy is unannounced and vehicle operator feels at risk.

Prius

  • 105,252 miles
Repeated code B1826. Tested wiring to the driver side airbag; found 4 volts on one of the wires diag short to power in the driver side floor wire harness causing the airbag warning light to illuminate and deactivate the airbag system. Wire was chaffed due to movement of drivers seat. This is nearly identical to the GM recall of 2010 Chevrolet Impala sedans issues July 21, 2016. GM admits a problem with chaffed wiring, but Toyota with nearly an identical problem does not recognize that it has a problem...or pay for the repairs $1482. Problem was intermittent for more than 6 months before dealer could solve the problem. Most of that time airbags were inoperative.
