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.

The airbag light is stays on and I received a interim recall notice in mail for spiral cable. I took it to the dealership for inspection and they said clock spring is causing the airbag light to stay on. I do not believe them. Both the clock spring and the spiral cable are behind the steering wheel. Now they want $500 to fix. I believe the dealership is avoiding to fix the recall replacement.

The air bag alert bag comes on solid. There has been a national recall on this since April. I have contacted my dealer and they have stated that the company (Toyota) has not decided what parts need to be replaced. Since this is a safety recall (since April) I feel that the safety of myself and my family are in jeopardy. As the natl.hwy traffic safety admin, I feel you should be able to enforce the recall and make Toyota take care of their customers.

I purchased my Yaris new in 2007. It now has 107,000 miles on it and the airbag warning light has come on. Dealer is telling me the spiral cable for airbag is shorted and needs repair - which will be about $500+ to fix, to ensure deployment if needed. Looking online I see other Yaris owners with this issue, and other Toyota vehicles with this same issue, and some recalls. I am very concerned as this is a safety issue and I feel a defect in engineering that should have a recall for Yaris also. Toyota responded with an offer to pay $200 to assist in getting it repaired or a special offer to buy another Toyota new - I took neither option believing this should be a recall for free repair, not cost me $300 plus.

The airbag light has been lit since last year on my Yaris. The dealer says it is the clock spring in the steering wheel and is out of warranty so they are not responsible. I see many complaints on the same item. I count over 25 complaints. The 2007 Toyota Tacoma had less complaints for the same problem and there has been a recall on it. What does it take to make my car safe?

Seat belt light came "on" while seat belt was fastened. Mechanic told me today that the diagnostic code told him that the clockspring assembly needed to be replaced - and unless I spent $489+ to fix it that neither the airbag nor seat belts would work - so it was mandatory to fix it!! the consumer stated the mechanic discovered broken wires in the clockspring assembly. The consumer stated he suffered a financial loss of almost $500 for the repair.

Air bag light on, Toyota says out of warranty. My car is not an isolated issue, as there are many complaints of the same thing. If the bags won't deploy in an accident, isn't this a safety issue? I think there should be a recall.

Last week the airbag safety light came on in my 2007 Yaris. According to my mechanic it can be one of four safety issues on the vehicle. Based on the code that came up on the inspection. Since the car is not under warranty this repair would be charged to me. This is clearly a safety issue and or faulty parts and should be a safety recall and not be ignored by Toyota. Corporate Toyota will only tell me my car is out of warranty and the airbag is only under warranty for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Airbags and seatbelts and faulty parts should be a lifetime warranty on the car. This issue should be under a recall. I'm told the seatbelts and airbags will most likely not work properly as this safety light is on. My mechanic has no idea of the cost of the repair because it can be one of four things including a clock spring in the steering column. Again this is a safety issue and in no way could be impacted by my driving or how the car is maintained. What needs to happen for Toyota to create a recall on this issue. How many people need to die or be injured" how do we go about getting this looked at and a recall issued"

I was driving home from work and I noticed the light came on for my airbag. I checked the manual and it said to bring it in to the service center immediately. I called and made an appointment and I was told the spiral cable was bad. I noticed other people have the same problem so I think this is a part that should be recalled.
