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.

2003 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

After my purchase of a new 2003 Toyota Tacoma pre-runner I quickly discovered my rear chrome bumper was rusting at the area where the license plate is displayed. I took my new truck to my local Toyota dealer and was told that Toyota recognized this was a problem but there was no recall issued on the problem and that I could continually use a type of steel wool to keep up with the rust as it was happening. Unacceptable.
