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.

Yaris 4-cyl

  • 122,625 miles


I own a 2007 Toyota Yaris it has approx 122K miles (mostly highway) and recently while getting my front tires replaced my mechanic pointed out to me that the "rear lower control arm and cradle bolts were rusted off). As an engineer I recognize this as either a design flaw or a manufactiring escape. Reguardless of the milage a critical structural component should not rust away in 4 years. Since the surrounding bolts are all good its pretty obvoious that the bolt material Toyota used on my car was the problem. Sadly when I brought my car to the dealer (lynch Toyota, manchester ct) I was not recieve the respect and consideration I beleive one whoi has a valid quality complaint to recieve, instead (even though my mech explained the issue to them 6 days prior to my appointment) I was told it would be several days before they had a part to fix the car, it was unsafe to drive and that by the way it will be at least $400 dollars to fix. This isn't some old lady who can't tell the difference between the gas pedal & the brake. Thsi si a major strucutal compont that just rusted away in 4 years! its an unsafe condition and it should be rectified befor someone gets killed.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Yaris. The contact stated that the vehicle exhibited an abnormal grinding when he would apply pressure to the brakes. He then noticed that the driver side E lower front control arm bolt was corroded and had fractured from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where they performed a diagnostic test and informed the contact that the sub frame would need to be dropped and the control arm bolt would need to be replaced. The manufacturer informed the contact that because the vehicle was not under warranty they could not offer any assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The current mileage was approximately 60,000 and the failure mileage was 59,000.
