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 4WD 6-cyl

2007 Toyota Tacoma 4 dr. 4X4:the low beam headlights are designed with only illumination on the lower part of the roadway blocking short distance, night time visibility with a black line and dangerously limiting reaction time. When going down an inclined roadway that approaches an uphill change in the cartway, there is no opportunity to see more than thirty (30) yards in front of the vehicle due to a distinct loss of visibility created by a shield in the headlight lens assembly directly in front of the lamp bulb. There was no consideration given to driving on hilly roads when this headlight was designed. One would never have enough reaction time to avoid hitting a pedestrian or animal, even driving at thirty (30) mph due to the very dark line in the headlight system created on low beam only. There are many times when one cannot drive just with the high beams. This is a very dangerous design and presents a very serious night time safety visibility issue. Toyota should recall these vehicle from 2005-2007 to replace the headlight assembly before someone is killed. I have never seen such an engineering blunder that was not known during daytime test drives. Updated 01/07/08. Updated 12/12/07
