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.

2009 Toyota Venza Owner Comments

Driver's side sun visor has failed. While driving on the freeway it suddenly dropped in front of my face causing my vision of the road to be obstructed. The visor is defective in that it would not stay up and away from my face while driving. It seems like the whole bracketing system which holds the visor in place broke and when the visor fell in front of my face, it actually fell lower than if I had put the visor down myself to block the sun. The light which activates the mirror in the sun visor has also stopped working. More importantly, this is a definite safety hazard as it almost caused me to rear-end the vehicle in front of me when the visor dropped and blocked my vision of the road.
