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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: You're going to burn through a lot of dinosaurs while chugging around town, and any rear passengers you may have to carry are going to feel real cramped, but at the end of the day this is a solid truck.

I am disabled and I keep receiving recall notices about airbags, and frame recalls from Toyota, but the local dealers tell me that they do not have the parts to fix them. I am unable to carry anyone in the passenger seat because of safety advisories and this is affecting the value of my vehicle, and risk of injury to myself and any passengers I may carry, and insurance coverage because of the recall notifications. I suffered diligently to pay for this vehicle and now I find it's an unsafe piece of junk that I cannot use. I really want this vehicle fixed or replaced with one that is not unsafe.

Toyota instructed me not to allow an occupant in the passenger seat until the airbag is repaired, rendering the vehicle useless for me. I can't even sell the vehicle due to the recall. I need to travel in a high humidity area for an extended period of time, but they have ignored my requests for airbag repair.

My Toyota Tundra is part of the air bag recall. My Toyota dealership does not have the part and may not have it for 10 days. In the intern, they have removed my passenger airbag and now no one can ride in the passenger side front seat until the recall repair has been completed. I have a family of 5 so now I can only ride 3 passengers in my vehicle. It has become a major inconvenience for me and my family. I requested a rental from my dealership but they declined. I contacted Toyota directly yesterday(1-888-270-9371) and was told to expect a call back within 24 hours. The 24 hours have passed and no contact back from Toyota.
