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. Consumer writes in regards to electronic system recall. The consumer stated when she started the vehicle, the front panel lit up, but the ready light did not light up, and she was unable to shift gears and could not turn the vehicle off. After many attempts, the vehicle eventually shut off. After many tries, the ready light finally lit up and the vehicle operated normally. The same thing happened six days later. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but they were unable to find a problem. Two weeks later, the problem happened again. The dear tried to tell the consumer, the problem was the battery. But, the panel showed the battery system was ok. The problem has since happened a fourth time. The consumer believed the recall that was previously performed, caused the issues.

Re: NHTSA 14V053000/hybrid propulsion system...I did not receive a recall notice in the mail. My daughter owns a new Prius and she did not receive any notice either. My car engine did not shut off but my daughter's engine has shut off. You should ask Toyota to show proof of its recall mailings. I'll bet the farm that they can't.
