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.

Vibration during accelerations. Feels like a drive line out of balance. Have had it to wilsonville Oregon dealer twice, and mention it to them every time I go in. They test drive every time and say there is no issue. Also have one tire that always leaks down, dealer can't seem to fix.

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Tacoma. While driving approximately 25 mph during icy conditions, the differential gear broke causing the vehicle to slide off the road. The vehicle crashed into a ditch and the windshield and turn signal were damaged. The contact did not report any injuries or if a police report was filed. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the differential gear was replaced under the warranty. The windshield and turn signal had not been repaired. The current and failure mileages were unknown.
