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.

Trying to use the 'hands free' feature of the bluetooth feature in the Rav4 Toyota, I ran into a curb trying to find a telephone number in the phone book. I had to purchase a new tire for over $200. And I just had the car for approx 2 or 3 days. I can't believe Toyota would even have a bluetooth feature that requires you to use the rotary tuner to find a telephone number. The salesperson told me to get a smart phone and it may help, but it did not. The bluetooth in my Rav4 is almost useless! who would design or put into a car a feature that would almost insure accidents if used as designed? I thought I was getting a bluetooth that would allow voice commands. As it is, I can only use voice commands using my phone and only talk using bluetooth. -- some hands free feature!!! my 1999 Camry had a better interface with my flip phone than my 2012 Rav4. I feel the feature was mis-represented. I have spent the last two years trying to get my samsung galaxy S3 to work with the Rav4 bluetooth. It is useless. I think Toyota should update the software or whatever is needed in my radio to get the hands-free feature more usable.
