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.

Wind noise in cab of my 2005 Tacoma extra cab. This is a extremely intolerable noise that destroys any possibility of having a enjoyable driving experience in this vehicle. Condition was; present when delivered, told today after complaining from day one that the condition is one caused by engineering defect and Toyota has no fix for it. I know this is present in all Tacoma of this model, 2005-2007 as I have driven another new truck exactly like mine with the same condition. Dealer is no help whatsoever. Talked with another owner 10/30/06 with same problem. Thank you for any help you might be. Charles
