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.

2011 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

problem #1

Prius 4-cyl

I was driving on interstate 20 with my wife when the sunroof exploded. There are two panes of glass and the exterior pane sent shards of glass out onto the highway. The internal pane of glass stayed in place but some shards of glass fell on my wife and myself. The Toyota dealer says this was due to a crack from debris which hit the car and compromised the integrity of the sunroof. They could not prove or show any mark indicating this as a fact. It was a very scary situation and I feel our sunroof was materially flawed and Toyota should be responsible for the problem.
