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.

When driving at 30 mph, car has vibration..took back to dealership. Brand new car, had to put 4 brand new tires on it. Could not get it to balance..after two new tires..after all new tires balances..alignment ok. Couldn't figure it out, because it still had the vibration. Talked to higher mechanics @ Toyota via phone said "nature of the car".before and after the 30 mph it smooths out and no vibration.

After parked for 20 minutes, the car is dead, had to jump start. Battery was replaced by the dealer, but the issue was not taking care of. At least 3 more times since the battery replacement, I found my car was again ded after parking, can not even open the door with remote. But all 3 times the car was able to power on after a few minutes on it's own while waiting for tow... above that, the clock, trip odometer and temp settings were resetting on random times since 650 miles, as well as the radio which will turn on and off at random. Dealer replaced the radio but it still does the same. I was told that they (dealer) can't tell anything wrong with the car, and can't do anything about it, unless it's dead while it's in their shop, even after I showed them the photos and videos of the issues.
