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.

2005 Tacoma passenger door would not latch closed, when door was closed. Had to hold door closed until truck was driven home. There were two people in truck, one to drive the other to hold door shut. Next business day took truck to dealer for repairs. No repair for faulty part, part was put on order, a temp fix was done so door would remain closed. Was advised not to use door until new part was installed.
