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.

Sun visor obstructing visibility: Last year (2003) the left sun visor (driver side) fell straight down blocking vision during travel. I already paid $100 + tax to replace it. Now on November 2014, the right sun visor (passenger side) is broken. I have concluded that it is a manufacturing defect and a safety hazard issue, because it can cause an accident. I don't feel I should have to pay for this visor again. There needs to be a recall due to a lot of complaints about this problem and before a tragedy occurs.

problem #4

Venza 4-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
The sun visor position retaining clip separated from the plastic molding and the visor will not remain up. The visor impedes visibility to the front. It can be moved out of the way to the left but that partially blocks my view of the side mirror. Since the visor is freely swinging sometimes it stops tilted toward the driver. In the event of a crash this could result in head injury. The loss of visibility toward the front is significant for drivers with a higher seating position. From several forums this appears to be an issue from at least the 2008 to 2010 Toyota model years across all models.

I purchased a Toyota Venza, and I am upset that Toyota no longer install extenders on the sun visors. The sun is hitting the driver and passenger in the eye, and it is not possible when driving into the sun to block out the sun in many instances, this is most annoying & unsafe.
