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.

Headlights low beam fail every month or so and I have replaced 16 bulbs in last year. This creates a dangerous situation for us. Also the cost is great. I have never had to replace headlights before in other vehicles. When is a recall going to be demanded ? when somebody is killed because of this

Driving in the evening, using headlights. Turn vehicle off and exit. Within an hour, get back into vehicle, start, turn on headlights and they (low beams) fail to illuminate. High beams work, as do parking lights, but the low beams stopped working, and they still fail to work. Driving without headlights or perpetual use of high beams is a safety hazard and distraction for other motorists causing an unsafe condition. Have made an appointment with local Toyota dealership for maintenance, in early Feb. 2014. The vehicle is still under factory warranty, less than 36 months old with fewer than 36,000 miles.
