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.

2005 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 012008


  • 60,500 miles


I started the vehicle, proceeded forward in a strait line, reached +/- 15 mph and the side curtain airbags deployed. I did not hit anything, was not hit and did not roll the vehicle. The ground was very smooth/flat. I received neck injuries and have had headaches ever since. My passenger received whip lash and has lost most of his hearing in his right ear permanently. It took 43 days for a response from Toyota (corporate). There position is that there airbag deployment system can not fail. There are 2 additional witnesses beside the driver/passenger who were standing just outside the vehicle when it happened. Toyota has not talked to any witnesses nor asked any questions. They have simply maintained that their system can't fail and are refusing to fix the vehicle. I will have to pay for the seatbelts to be replaced out of my pocket but can't afford to replace the airbags or headliner (approximately an additional $6,000).
