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.

Geico claim number: [xxx]February 7, 2011 to whom it may concern: Note, this is the second time I'm filing to update my address. On October 18, 2010 my 2009 Toyota Sienna dashboard vsc (variable skid control)/off track and check engine lights illuminated. I took my van in for service immediately. The dealership made repairs that were covered under warranty, and assured me that the van was safe to drive (a copy of the invoice from that service is attached for your reference). On November 24, 2010, the same vsc/off track and check engine lights illuminated again. When I returned to my local dealership for service, I was informed that due to the thanksgiving holiday, the service department did not have availability until November 30, 2010. Service advisor assured me that my vehicle was safe to drive, as long as I stayed in town, and wasn't planning on taking the car on any long trips. However, I never got a chance to return my van to the dealership because on November 29, 2010 it started to make unusually loud noises and accelerated unexpectedly. Naturally, I attempted to stop by braking, but the brakes were not functioning at all. I tried again and again to brake, but to my disappointment the brake pedal did nothing, no matter how much I pumped it. Luckily, I was able to avoid hitting any pedestrians or cars by steering up the curb and into a lamppost. The van continued to accelerate uncontrollably until it finally came to rest on the steps of the county courthouse! information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
