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.

2014 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 162014

Prius 4-cyl

  • 1,500 miles


The contact owns a 2014 Toyota Prius. While driving approximately 60 mph, the vehicle drove over a pothole, which caused the rear of the vehicle to elevate. The contact lost control of the steering and brakes. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 1,500. The consumer stated he took the vehicle to the dealer, for erratic steering when going around curves at moderate speeds. The same morning, while driving, the vehicle went over a dip in the pavement. The rear of the vehicle went airborne as if, it was on a hydraulic lift. The consumer had no control of the steering or braking. What saved him was the left rear brake and the tire jerked on the pavement and pulled the vehicle back straight. He experienced the failure for a second time. Updated 10/29/14 updated 11/21/14
