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.

Tundra 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,500 miles
2005 Toyota Tundra limited, I was hit back right middle of tire, caving in truck bed, losing complete control of vehicle, axle and transmission dismantled, went into a 360 spin with back tires completely bent and no control. Then hit head on at a high rate of speed over 35-45 mph. With air-bags not going off! truck was completely rebuilt with hidden cost not released to me. Resulting in truck being rebuilt, when it should've been totaled-out. Still waiting major back surgery after 15 months, loss of work. Insurance companies "hiding" hidden bills that would made my truck over 80% totaled. I need answers and help on why my air bags didn't deploy saving my life I once had, and bills that I didn't have! and yet Toyota signs off on my car saying it's safe to drive again with my children on the highways. And now front-end bearings are the #2 recall for the truck resulting in more damage and cost and safety to my family. Please help, if anyone has had problems with air-bag deployment not going off on this state of the art Toyota Tundra truck!
