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.

2006 Toyota Yaris Owner Comments

Yaris 4-cyl

  • 10,000 miles


I purchased this car in December 2006 in puerto rico. I needed a car to visit my father who currently lives there. During 2007 through 2012, I visited him approximately five times and drove the car. In 2013, I decided to bring the car to Virginia, us. I bought the 2006 Yaris Toyota to the us with approximately 6K miles in March 2013. In May 2013, the sensor controlling the air bags turned on and I it was unable to pass state inspection. The week after, while I was driving to work, the car lost all of the brakes functionality. I had to pull the emergency brakes in this car or else have an accident. Overall between the sensor and new brakes it is costing over $1300. In two months of driving the car from fredericksburg Virginia to springfield Virginia, the mileage used was about 4K extra. In essence; the car with only 10K, and is at home while I think of what to do with this car. The car is paid off and a car on only 10K miles should not have so many issues. Toyota said it cannot repair the car because it is a 2006 model, however the mileage on the car is only 10K.
