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 was on the freeway all of sudden traffic stooped, I hit the brakes no ABS the traction lite came on car went to neutral. I had an impact at 20.1 mph according to Toyota black box. The front end was damaged in the tune of $8300 tore the front bumper off severe frame damage all in the area of the air bag sensor that was tore off. Come to find out after the accident their was an air bag recall we were never notified. The vehicle was fixed by a body shop recommended by the dealership that never checked out the system, I took it in for the recall they did not perform as per their supplemental documents from your web site. Now I have nerve damage and tendentious as I braced myself and bent the steering wheel. I have asked and asked for help from Toyota they told me the impact was not severe enough. My understanding is the air bags deploy at a 10 to 15 mph impact I hit at 20 plus. Their is a major flaw on the traction system the lite comes on when you apply the brake, I was told that my foot was to big and I push the brake to hard and I should not of bought the car. Edmund's web site has hundreds of complaints of cars acting the same way and some people have their cars stall in intersections. Bottom line with this issue someone is or has going to be killed unless their is a recall or investigation.
