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.

Both low beam headlights went out simultaneously. Safety driving lights also did not work. High beam headlights did work. Troubleshooting revealed that both sylvania silverstar 9033/HB2 H4 light bulbs burned out simultaneously. The headlight bulbs are dangerous and should be recalled asap. Having both headlights burn out at the same time in inexcusable! it nearly caused me to crash at high speed. Had to drive home using my high beams and fog lights.

Taillight bulbs fall out of the socket. We returned the vehicle to the dealer a couple of times and they put the bulbs back in but didn't fix the problem that the sockets don't have enough spring tension to secure them in place. I've since blocked them in place with toothpicks to increase the tension of the sockets. Cheap fix but they should replace the sockets.

I own a 2001 Tundra. I just learned of 4 recalls: Nhsta #09E025000, 09V444000, 06E026000, and 06E065000. We received no notification from the companies required to do so. The truck is registered. We purchased the truck new and have been the only owners. We have not changed address since the purchase. I believe the failure to be notified was deliberate to avoid the cost of compliance with the recall. I have been unable to get any of the 4 companies involved to respond to phone messages.
