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.

I have a 1998 Toyota Sienna recently the airbag light is on and the horn and cruise control are not working I wonder if this can be a safety recall for the life of the vehicle or do I just have to pay for the repair.

Since June 2003 the consumer noticed the horn would not operate all the time. Vehicle was taken to the dealer on 8/5/2003. Dealer could not determine the problem.

While operating the vehicle the horn will suddenly become inopperative causing an extremely hazardous situation of operating the vehicle without the horn. The vehicle was taken to the Toyota dealership on 08/28/2001 where I was told the clock spring contact was distorted and needed to be replaced ($470) not 3 weeks later the exact same thing happened, the horn suddenly becomes inopperative. I was told this was not covered by our extended warranty which we paid almost $900 dollars for. The is obvioulsy a very serious saftey concern and are there any avenues to persue to have this problem paid for by Toyota? I am very displeased with Toyota and there extended warranty policy.
