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.

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Yaris. While driving approximately 30 mph, the vehicle jerked and surged dramatically without warning. The dealer advised the contact to increase his speed while driving because the vehicle cannot sufficiently operate at low throttle. The manufacturer provided no assistance. The failure mileage was 2,000 and current mileage was 2,025.
