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.

I am being denied use of my 2006 Toyota Tundra due to the extended delay in replacing the passenger air bag because there is no other safe place my wife can sit in the vehicle. So I can only use it by myself for short trips to the store. For longer trips I have to make use of another vehicle and rent a trailer if I have to move any items, that we need to do on a regular basis. Toyota should stop its foot dragging in replacing the defective passenger air bags, particularly on vehicles where the passenger has no other safe option for sitting.

Received a safety recall notice from Toyota some time back in regards to the passenger air bag. Notice does not indicate when the remedy can be performed, but does recommend not allowing anyone to ride in the font passenger seat. This is beyond words. How is this possible, put some pressure on the manufacturer. It is their problem, make them fix it now. Telling someone not to use a passenger seat in a pickup is asinine. Recall is pathetic.

This is not a complaint about a specific incident; it's a complaint about how long it's taking for Toyota to implement its recall. Toyota's instructions advise no one ride in the front seat until the repairs are made to the airbags. It has been almost 5 months since the recall. My four person car has been a three person car since the recall went into effect it has rendered us unable to drive our family of four effectively denying us the benefit of the bargain of the vehicle we purchased. This delay is inexcusable.

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

We received a notification regarding a safety recall for our Toyota Tundra 2006. It says that Toyota doesn't currently have the parts to repair the passenger side airbag which may be under pressure and could deploy at anytime. We were advised not to utilize the passenger side of our vehicle until we are contacted for a repair. This advise has not been possible since we have another car in the shop and we have needed to commute together. We do not feel that we should have to rent a car. It's unreasonable that Toyota would expect their loyal customers to "wait" for a repair that is their responsibility and in the meantime not use their vehicle. It has been over three weeks since we received the recall notification and we have not heard from Toyota that our repair can be scheduled. We believe that Toyota has failed to remedy the defect within a reasonable time and we want this recall to be remedied immediately for the safety of our family. Thank you
