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.

2009 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

The rear view mirror is too low and causes a large blind spot. The blind spot created by the location of the rear view mirror has caused me not to be able to see several vehicles crossing in front of me. This is most prominent when approaching an intersection and a vehicle is approaching from my right. I have found that I must actually duck down and look around my mirror when approaching intersections in order to see all approaching traffic.

The windshield wipers on my 2009 Toyota Tacoma abruptly stopped working while driving in rain. Visibility was seriously limited, making the situation dangerous to me and others. I took the vehicle to the closest Toyota dealer, they determined the wiper motor was defective and they would have to order one. The problem persists and has yet to be repaired.
