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.

problem #1

Solara EX

  • 1,000 miles

Car was new 24 FEB 04. By April, I thought every intersection in Newark, Ohio had bad sewage smells. The smell was and still is most noticeable when the car is stopped (traffic light, stop sign, etc) when, of course, the fan is running (AC or heater). I haven't tried anything yet, but the heating season (and the smell season) is here again. My first Toyota, a 1990 Camry, never had smells.
