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.

Purchased a 2003 Toyota Tacoma on June 4, 2003, and paid cash in full. The air conditioning (A/C) in the truck went out. I have taken the truck to covington pike three separate times for repairs, and each time they failed to repair the A/C. I informed the manager on duty that I would be going out of town for the labor day weekend and would need a loaner truck. I was told by the manager that he could not help me in any way. I have recently began new employment and, having to leave work due to the incompetence of covington pike Toyota has left a bad impression with my new employer.
