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.

I have a notice for revision "safety recall dsf". the recall says I need to bring in for air bag replacment for passanger front seats. So August 31,2015 I took my Sequoia to Toyota of knoxville tn. Off of parkside dr. It was looked over and I was told they needed to order parts and I would be called for the repairs once the parts came in to schedule an appointment. It is now May 23,2016 and I have not been contacted for repairs to be completed. Also the trac control button stopped working and lights on the dash. Was there a recal for this also?

Received notice of recall in 2013 for possible defective airbag. Brought car in and was told parts where not available. Received second notice that air bag was recalled and warning not to allow passengers in front seat. Contacted dealer numerous times since and informed air bag part not available. This is unbelievable I can't use my SUV as intended. I could possibly face a tort action suit if I allow a person to sit in the front seat knowing it is possibly lethal. I am hindered from selling my vehicle as I feel I am obligated to tell potential buyers that their is a recall for a defective airbag that could possibly kill a passenger. I want this fixed.
