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.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

I own a 2006 Toyota Tacoma with 2700 miles, upon seeing (2) of my tires with large bulges on the exterior sidewalls I took my truck to the dealership and asked that the defective tires be replaced under the warranty. The dealership refused and I was told by the service manager that they would do nothing concerning my tires. Upon taking my truck to a Firestone dealer(the tires in question are Firestone) I was told by Firestone management that these tires where obviously damaged by improper installation. Upon tearing the tire down this was confirmed by the large cuts in the beads. After calling the dealership they still refused to do anything. These tires and truck are the subject of a Toyota safety recall (NHTSA campaign # 06V-061).the recall states that it is illegal to sell truck without inspecting first, this was not done. It states that Toyota would contact owners, this was not done. It states that upon returning said truck that all tires would be removed and inspected, bad tires would be replaced @ Toyota expense, non of this was done. Instead I was accused of damaging the tires by hitting curbs yet Firestone and Goodyear cannot find any such evidence (because it never happened and does not exist). The service manager then offered to work with me on replacement tires.(there going to sell me replacement tires" damaged by Toyota??") I was also told over the phone by Toyota that because it was a tire problem that I could not claim this truck was a lemon, it was a dealership problem. This was and is a baseless lie. These tires were damaged by Toyota at the Toyota factory upon installation as noted in the Toyota safety recall. I currently as of Friday have been told that I have no recourse but to wait no more than 2 business days for someone to contact me, maybe in 4 days?? while I drive around in an unsafe truck, or have no truck and no way to earn a living(I need a truck that's why I bought one)
