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.

Temperature in utica, NY on Jan 15 at 10 am was -10 degrees. A 5 hour ride back home in snow, dirt, and rain I tried to operate the windshield wiper fluid on the highway 90 West. It would not work because it was frozen. After trying a couple times more, the visibility got worse with temperatures at 5 degrees. Had to pull over to clean the windshield many times until arriving to 23 degree weather. It worked when I arrived home. I also notices the exhaust pipe that seems to touch the exhaust pipe has burnt a hole in the mud flap. This had happened sometime between my trip to utica on Jan 14-15. There has been no add-on mod to the exhaust pipe and the mud-flap but are now sticking together. Is this a fire hazard?

The contact owns 2008 Toyota Tundra. The contact stated that when the weather was humid, the check engine light illuminated. The contact stated that he was driving 5 mph when the check engine light came on. The check engine light would come on for a week at a time, then it would go off for a couple days, then back on 3 more times throughout the day. The owner took the vehicle to the dealership for testing. The dealer said that the computer was not showing a code so there was nothing that could be done. The failure mileage was 5,000. The current mileage was 13,5000. The consumer stated the transmission would hesitate during take off as well as during cold temperatures and the engine made a rattle sound. The radio would come on and change stations by itself. The consumer stated the accelerator pedal became stuck even before a recall was issued. The blower motor did not always work properly, the re-circulator would shut off by itself even if the button was held down for 3 seconds. Updated 04/20/10
