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.

The contact owns a 2005 Toyota Tacoma. While driving 50 mph, the rear of the vehicle began to vibrate. In addition, the brake pedal was depressed and it took a longer distance to stop the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the driveshaft needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The VIN was included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V604000 (suspension). The failure mileage was 79,000.

My son was driving his 2005 Toyota Tacoma when suddenly he heard and felt a sudden loud noise like a gun shot. He lost all power in his truck. He was able to get his truck off the interstate. He discovered his drive shaft had fallen out! it is a miracle he was not killed! it is only by god's grace that when the front U-bolt broke, the drive shaft broke into two pieces. The rear piece caught on the rear axle. We are pleased he was not hurt, but is this same problem Toyota has with its 2010 Toyota Tacoma? please look into this problem before someone is killed. Updated 09/23/10 * bf the driveshaft had to be replaced. Updated IVOQ 09/24/10
