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.

Both rear leaf springs failed in November 2014. The outer leaf of both rear springs fractured. I replaced the leaf springs with an after market suspension system which included rear leaf springs. This was before the Toyota leaf spring recall. Toyota just denied my claim for reimbursement stating that the after market leaf springs are not the part that was covered by the recall. They stated that after market parts are not eligible for reimbursement. Based on what I have read of the law, I don't believe this to be a valid reason for denial of reimbursement.

The problem with leaf spring started three years and after the final recall, we waited two months. The bad leaf spring caused a rough vibration, which caused rod, dry shaft, U joint, and rear end are connected which caused damage to all connected parts.the three years and two months of rough vibration caused a snowball effect while driving, turning and in motion.

NHTSA recall: 14V-604- received notice stating "the remedy will take approximately two hours." I called rick hendrick Toyota Scion sandy springs and I was informed that it is a two step process the first step lasting 2 hours. Then if needed they will order the parts ("we don't keep them on hand as the boxes are too big") taking 2 weeks then another 2 plus hours to install. Now that is not what the notice states, it states two hours ( I know I see the restof the paragraph) but really double if not triple the stated time and 2 weeks to wait just does seem to be in the keeping of the spirit of the contract.
