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.

My husband and I were completely stopped, waiting to turn left in a suicide left turn lane in the city. A car suddenly entered the turn lane, headed straight towards us. I honked but the other driver did it brake or swerve, impacting us at a high rate of speed. Our air bags did not deploy.

Takata recall; received air bag recall 2014, took to david maus Toyota sanford, Florida and had passenger air bag corrected with my receipt. 2016 June, air bag warning light was on, (noticed while driving) took again to david maus Toyota, they found error code and checked all diagnostics, found nothing wrong. The simply diagnosis couldn't determine the cause and then was advised to pay for a thoroughly diagnosis, which I payed $128. Today July 2nd while driving truck, found air bag light on again (while driving) !! I spoke to david maus Toyota service manager July 2nd. He said I can bring it in again and my $128 dollars would go to any needed repairs. I'm taking my 2004 Tundra truck in, either July 5, 6, or 7th. The vehicle will stay inside my garbage until time to take to david maus Toyota. Allen niren

Takata recall : Toyota and Toyota dealership in nassau bahamas refuse to be responsible for transporting the vehicle from the island of eleuthera bahamas to the island of nassau and then returning the vehicle. We live in the bahamas and there is no dealership on the island of eleuthera, we do not want to drive the vehicle and according to the recall notice "if you are uncomfortable driving the vehicle to the dealership, please contact your authorized Toyota dealer who will arrange for vehicle pickup." Both Toyota and the Toyota dealership are refusing to do the pickup.

Takata recall I called in to my local Toyota dealership about having the defective airbag replaced and it has been 3 weeks since we called in. They still have yet to call us back to inform us that our parts have come and when we call they just tell us that they have not received the parts for the fix. Worried about my passengers safety and I have not other way of transportation to wait any longer for it to be fixed.

Takata recall I have tried since Aug. 2015 to get my husband's truck to a dealer to have the airbag replaced. Every time I call to make an appt. I am told they don't have the replacements in and will put his name on a call list. I have yet to receive a call. I call about every couple weeks. I keep getting letters and post cards asking me to get this fixed, but if Toyota isn't sending the replacement bags how can I get this done. Tried of waiting!!

Takata recall - I was contacted by Toyota concerning the air bag recall earlier this year. My first letter arrived on 7/18/2015. I have contacted Toyota several time to find out when the airbag can be replaced. I was told they have no idea when the part will arrive and no idea when my car can be repaired. This is unacceptable. I use my truck for business and is currently losing money because I can not drive the vehicle. I informed Toyota of this issue and was not given priority or any consideration for my inconvenience. This has not only cost me in time and money, but I feel the service I received is not acceptable as well. I wish I could sale the truck but nobody was a truck with a defective airbag. I am one unhappy customer due to this airbag recall. I can no longer say or support Toyota as a good auto maker. At the end of the day, once the airbag is replaced I will sale the truck and will no longer purchase a Toyota product.

I received a notice for the airbag recall on my 2004 Toyota Tundra access cab pickup several months ago. The notice recommended that I do not operate the vehicle with an occupant in the front passenger seat. I don't understand how I am suppose to do this when my vehicle only fits 2 adults. Why hasn't Toyota offered a buy back on there vehicles if they can fix it in a reasonable amount of time? I would like a fix for my vehicle asap or a safe rental until the meantime.
