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.

I bought a Tacoma 3 months after Toyota warranty enhancement program (ztz) no pol 14-03 date 06/25/14 primary coverage ended on Nov. 30 2015. The day time running lights have burn, and cracked, the inside lens, inside the headlight unit. I had them looked at, and pictures were taken of both burned headlights. They sent the info to servco Hawaii 1-888-272-5515 and 3 weeks later on 03/11/2016 was told they denied me for the free replacement. I had talked to the guy I had gotten the truck from and he said he had never gotten a letter from Toyota, for the light problem or he would have gotten the free replacement done. I disappointed with Toyota not fixing this safety problem, as I feel if it can burn and crack the plastic lends I hope it can not start a fire. Also the distorted view the oncoming cars see. I have talked to others that stated they to never gotten notice of this headlight problem and they to have the day time running lights that are the cause of the problem. I have a feeling the letters were not sent to a lot of the people, that it should have sent to. I'm curious as to the number they did fix, compared to how many trucks with day time running lights are out there, that were not fixed that should be fixed.
