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.

Toyota pre-collision system (pcs) on 2016 Rav4. I never get any kind of warning, even when cars cut me off at highway speeds, I approach a car from behind at speed (I cannot get too risky here), etc. Other pcs systems on friends cars (non Toyota) have some warnings, even false ones a bit. I asked my dealer to check it was working, they had no procedures to test it other than obdii for sensors out. Seems like the promised and iihs tests indicated that this pcs system worked to stop the car. On line searches I cannot find anyone who has seen their system working or alarms. The Toyota video indicates warnings seem to occur at 7-10 car lengths - I have been cut off on highway at less than one car length with no warnings. Ron korody 519-304-8898 res.

The mirrors have a small 'blind spot' mirror that is poorly located. To have the mirror positioned to see the neighboring lanes the main mirror shows almost 1/2 of it's area of the vehicle. To position the main mirror to properly show the area near and behind the vehicle the blind spot mirrors show an area that is irrelevant.
