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.

Tacoma 4-cyl

  • 160,000 miles
Went to drive home from work and safety belt on right front passenger side pulled all the way out, will not retract. Have had many issues with the safety belts since buying the truck, such as folding up, not retracting all the way, getting caught, but none as bad as the current issue. Received safety recall notice from Toyota regarding the seat belts in this access cab model, but was informed today by the dealer in placerville that this is not covered under the recall. I firmly believe that the seatbelts on these access cab models are affected by the opening and closing of the rear doors, and have a serious design flaw. Because I need my vehicle for my commute, going to pay for the repair, however, I can only imagine someone dying because of the flaws in the seatbelts in the 2005 Toyota Tacoma access cab model.
