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.

2016 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

There is an ongoing issue with the head rests on this vehicle. The default setting is much too far forward, causing a forward head and neck posture, resulting in headaches, neck pain, etc., and make it very uncomfortable to drive, and difficult to check blind spots. It also forces the driver's head very close the airbag, which is supposedly very dangerous. If you move the seat back, then you are too reclined to drive attentively. Online searches and complaints to the dealer tell me I'm not the only one complaining about this, and it is supposedly the result of NHTSA regulations. This is terrible if true.
