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.

Takata recall. Called a local Toyota dealer months ago who told me they would call when parts are available. Still waiting for a call. This airbag situation is dangerous and greatly limits the use of this vehicle as spouse will no longer drive it and I am able to use it on a limited basis. I know there is a backlog but NHTSA needs to force Toyota to fix these defective vehicles.

Vsc vsc traction control lights comes on as well as the check engine light. The vehicle accelerates poorly. This makes for a very dangerous situation because the vehicle can slow dramatically at highway speeds. Lights go off for a little while when the battery is disconnected but all lights and acceleration problems return shortly. Owners have spent thousands of dollars replacing parts without a long term fix. Spouse will no longer drive the vehicle because of this dangerous problem. Totoya needs to fix this widespread problem.

Toyota issued a recall based upon a front passenger airbag issue. We had an appointment to fix the recall but Toyota says they are prohibited from doing the work. They have the part in stock. They do not have anyone on a waiting list. I want our car fixed. We have had to rearrange a trip taken in early September because of the recall and inability to have it fixed. We are following your recommendation that we do not use the front seat. We have been inconvenienced on a daily basis because we can not Transport 7 people as we customarily do for school purposes. We have now had the additional burden and cost to rearrange two long distant trips at the end of this year because we can not use the car to carry people as it was designed. I understand there must be alot of cars to fix. I utilize mine in the manner of transporting 7 or a family of 4 with dogs and luggage. I do not understand why the recall can not be taken care of in an expeditious manner if the part is in stock and no one else is waiting for such a recall repair. Please explain why a loyal customer who purchased the vehicle for its designed purpose can not get your (problem) recall on the vehicle fixed immediately when parts are not only available but in stock at our local dealer? I want the full use of my vehicle. I do not want to be inconvenienced further. Toyota has always gone the extra mile and earned our loyalty but if this is making no sense and causing grief and frustration.

I received a letter from Toyota 2 weeks ago indicating the safety recall with the front passenger air bag inflators which were incorrectly manufactured and have the potential to fatally injure the passenger in the event they are deployed in an accident. To date, huntington Toyota of long island has not received the necessary parts to complete the repair for the recall and they have no idea when they will have the parts. I purchased an SUV because I obviously had a need for more seats and room. I use my truck daily transporting my children and their friends to various functions, otherwise I would have gotten a smaller vehicle. So Toyota's suggestion to vehicle owners to not use the passenger seat, is unacceptable. I am requesting that the necessary parts for this airbag be immediately sent to huntington Toyota for my vehicle. I have 3 Toyota vehicles and have been a long time customer, but if this matter is not rectified to my satisfaction, I will no longer consider Toyota vehicles for future purchase.
