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.

While washing with a microfiber cloth and garden hose with less than 20,000 miles and only 4 years old blizzard pearl paint is peeling off in large chunks. 1.5 years out of warranty. Toyota will not make this right. I realize safety may not be eminent but in the long run rusted metal will leak water in electrical components.

The 5th (back of vehicle) door latch completely failed and would not hold door closed. There was no accident or any other damage to the door. The latch inside simply failed. I had to tie the door closed to get it to a dealer for repair.
