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.

Exhaust is extremely loud on Yaris during acceleration and causes the interior cabin to smell. I had a friend look at the exhaust for a leak and all he could find is a shredded gasket. The exhaust was in excellent shape and showed no damage or corrosion. Internet searches have revealed that the gasket on the 07 Yaris is poorly designed and several people are affected by this.

The check engine light on my manual-transmission 2007 Toyota Yaris will intermittently come on for a period of several hours up to several days before shutting off. This has been occurring for several months now. Sometimes when the light is on, the car accelerates on its own. It also may stall, or the engine will rev really high without the gas pedal being touched. I brought it to a mechanic that replaced one of the sensors, however the problem persists.
