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 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

Tacoma 4WD 4-cyl

While passing several radar signs, I noticed my trucks speedometer was reading about 8% above the actual speed I was traveling. A check at a "speedometer check" where they have mileage signs every mile for several miles also confirmed this. A trip with my gps also showed the speedometer was inaccurate. The dealership checked my truck on their smog dyno and said my speedometer was only 1 mph off at 40 mph. They inferred that satellites, police radar and my wrist watch are less accurate than their smog test dyno, not likely. I'm getting ripped off for 8% of my warranty!
