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.

Water drain for A/C system condenser clogged. Has happened every summer since purchase in 2007. Water fills the drain, and gets trapped within the unit leading to an overflow onto the blower and blower motor shorting the relays. Fuses are blown, and the blower motor needs replacing. It has happened several times. A mold buildup also occurs in carpeting leading to a health hazard.

On 16 August, 2013, while turning into a garage parking spot I took my foot off the accelerator to press on the brake to come to full stop before the concrete column at the end of the parking space when, of its own Accord, the car suddenly lurched forward at much accelerated speed. The car crashed into the concrete column destroying the front left head lights, entire front grill work, and the frame of the driver's side door was bent so the door would not be opened. No airbags deployed. On 20 August, 2013 my insurance company deemed the car a total loss.

The trunk of the vehicle does not stay open on its own, there are no springs or any device to keep it open especially if the car is on a incline. Myself, my parents and boyfriend have been hit in the back of the head by the trunk lid. Very painful. Did question the dealership about it and was told that was how the car was made.

I was driving my 2007 Toyota Yaris sedan along I-75 northbound towards atlanta when all of a sudden my driver's side door window just exploded for no reason. The shattered glass blew out all over the inside of the passenger cabin. There was no external force that caused the glass to shatter (it simply exploded spontaneously).
