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

  • 62,000 miles


Recurrent accelerator pedal failure (drive by wire) with check engine light warning. Occasionally, when accelerating, the check engine light comes on and the pedal depressing action initially has no effect for several depressions and then it works minimally. This may last for a while or for just a short period. It has happened several times. I did a search online and other people are having the same problem.

Every morning winter or summer, I have to wait for my car to warm up in order to drive it up the road if I want to go more than 25 mph. The transmission does not want to go out of first gear until the car is at a certain temp. I can't go up a road that is 35-45 mph if I just started my car, otherwise there would be alot of upset people behind me because I can't go fast until the car warms up. The dealer tells me that is common for any Toyota car as they make them that way to ensure they last as long as they do. You should never just get in your car and go. It needs to warm up and get fluids to the proper temperature. Is this a crock because I see other complaints and no one has mentioned that the dealer says this car should act this way and this is normal?

I've had my 2007 Toyota Yaris for about a year now, in the mornings when the car is cold the transmission doesn't shift properly, when the weather is cold its worse, the other problems is that the car wobbles when im driving slow, an when I drive faster it starts to shakes, an when I run the ac the engine shakes real bad, the dealership when I bought the car is giving me the run around.

  • Automatic transmission

The vehicle does not shift correctly when going from 10 to 45 mph. The automatic transmission will not shift correctly to the next gear. It seems to happen more when it is just starting off in the morning rather than after it warms up.

Yaris 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,474 miles
Acceleration between 20-45 miles per hour was "jumpy" and "un smooth" on a brand new 2007 automatic sedan Toyota Yaris. This started a week after a routine oil change and inspection was done. The car was bought with 11 miles on it and by 6,400 it needed a new transmission. I can't believe I had a brand new car for less than three months and it had a faulty transmission. I smell lemons.
