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.

When manually closing the rear hatch door latch on the 2010 Toyota Venza it auto shuts and can cause objects, including my fingers, to be caught. It is equipped with the power close feature but when you close it manually, it overrides the sensors that would stop the closing mechanism. I recently installed a cargo mat and when manually shutting the rear hatch door, my fingers were caught between the door and the car hatch. It shut fully and caught all 8 fingers and there was no override mechanism to stop this from occurring. I had to call for assistance and my worry is that children or animals will easily be caught and severe injuries will be incurred. I reported this to my local Toyota dealership and they are working on a resolution, but this seems to be a very problematic feature that should be researched and enhanced for safety reasons.

On my 2010 Toyota Venza, my wife injured her hand when she was closing the tailgate and the power motor which pull the tailgate shut trapped her hand under pressure between the tailgate and the floor of the car. She needed me to release the tailgate to free her hand. Pressure injury to hand.

Toyota Venza. The rear hatch is auto open/close. Using the auto closing button on the dash of the vehicle, I initiated the close sequence. The rear hatch started to close normally, then it "slammed shut" with enough force to cause serious injury to anyone under the hatch. Subsequent attempts at opening or closing the hatch resulted in a "stutter" effect which required me to close the hatch manually. I took the car to the dealer. They told me that I should not slam the hatch shut. I have never slammed the hatch, I always use the button on the dash or the key fob to open/ close the hatch. The rod is now bent that holds the hatch open. I am concerned that this will happen again when I am under the hatch. This could result in the loss of a limb if circumstances were correct.
