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.

The orange bulb in the headlights burnt through plastic casing inside the headlight. One side has cracked. I'm not exactly sure when this happened, but I did notice it a while back that the bulb was burning the plastic, however, I just noticed that it cracked on one side.

The daytime running lights that came with my Tacoma started running so hot that it is melting/cracking the plastic lens/housing. After a simple google search of the problem, I came across multiple forums with users who have the same problem. Some were lucky enough to have this problem occur within the warranty period but others, such as myself, were asked to pay upwards of $800 for new housings. After looking at the bulbs, I noticed that even the housings for the bulbs are showing burn marks. On the road I have seen at least 8 different Toyota Tacoma with the same problem, their lenses are either bubbling up and burning, or fully cracked. This safety option that came standard on my Tacoma is now a safety issue that needs to be addressed.
