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 taken the vehicle to Toyota collision center on 2/1/10 the first business day after the accident. The collision center hold onto my vehicle till 2/15/10 [xxx] mention he will start working on it and every time he ask me if I will file a claim which he state the vehicle would take longer to repair then. And be ready this wed 2/24/10 which I call yesterday and he mentioned he was not sure. I have tried to find a lawyer (1800lawyers) but they did not want to take cases relating to Toyota. Now I'm without me vehicle for several weeks and I cannot do anything. I have reported this issue with Toyota case[xxx] and I have geico insurance case [xxx] (1800654-5896 ext 5608 [xxx] ).

Hi I have a Toyota Sienna 2009.it has only 11,000 miles on it. I do the maintenance on time. Two months back I drive a 800 mile to other state. After 200 miles we notice that we can't control the car on time. We go the near by Toyota dealership. They told me they checked the brakes and told me that everything is fine. When we went back to Chicago again we went to the dealership they give the same answer. Now we are driving the car slowly and so carefully. I think my car is having the same issues the other Toyota cars having. Pls do the something.
