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.

2009 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

The car accelerated to 68.4 mph. I could not stop car first time with ABS brakes. I took my foot off the brake and it helped but it was too late. The car hit the tree. The Sienna's brakes did not work properly at first, the car so how went from 30 mph to 68.4 mph and the steering did not work. Something has to be done when 1.2 million dollars of damage to a family. Luckily metropolitan and aetna limited the health care personals. The car was damaged beyond repair. We have new friends called collections companies. Please do not buy Toyota. The corporation considers the accident not their fault.
