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.

Prius v

  • 33,634 miles


The contact owns a 2012 Toyota Prius V. while driving at a slow rate of speed, the vehicle shifted into neutral and came to a slow stop. The contact was unable to get the vehicle out of neutral after the failure. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and it was determined that the inverter failed on the vehicle. The dealer stated this was a known issue with Toyota's hybrid vehicles, but could only replace it with the same model inverter that would fail again. The manufacturer would not confirm what the dealer stated about this being a known issue. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 33,634. The VIN was not available. MA 07/30/15
