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.

There are a large amount of complaints about this, but toyota ignores this and the transmission problem. The lady at the toyota call center basically said that the more people that complian, the more likely to get a recall, Toyota- not your dealer and tell them!

This time it almost took the lives of my 8-year-old little girl and myself (so I thought for a few brief seconds). I'd hate to have the kind of Carma (spelling intentional) that these people have coming to them. Right on John Lennon's 70th birthday year! Instant Karma's Gonna Get You...The check engine light is on, the traction control lights are on and my brakes are broken again! Go figure!! It's time for legal action folks. Does anyone want to possibly join in on a class action lawsuit if you're describing the same things I am and Toyota tells you what a great imagination you have or you didn't use their parts or if you drive your car off their lot without fixing it you have to sign a waiver saying your car is not in driveable condition?
