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.

Yaris 4-cyl

I was driving home from work when the battery light came on when I pulled into my drive way. I smelled something burning and there was smoke coming from under the hood of my 2007 Yaris. I popped the hood and the alternator was on fire. I poured water on it to put it out and disconnected the battery. It was still making an odd sound so I poured some more water on it and it started smoking again.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Yaris. While driving approximately 45 mph, the vehicle began to decelerate and would not respond when the accelerator was engaged with the illumination of the check engine warning light. The contact was able to drive the vehicle to the dealer where the technicians advised that the timing gear had failed and would need to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure was mileage 2,000. The VIN was not available.

Passenger side of vehicle has a leak when the air conditioner is used. Took to the dealer and was charged approximately $200 to fix said problem. Less than a month later the issue is happening again. Seems to be more than one issue of this occuring.
