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.

2008 Toyota Yaris Owner Comments

I was recently involved in a motor vehicle accident. I was driving down a main road at approximately 37 mph. There was another vehicle (SUV) which was stopped at a stop sign. The vehicle pulled out in front of my vehicle and the front end of my vehicle collided with the side of the other vehicle. The front of my 2008 Toyota Yaris had a lot of damage including the bumper and hood being pushed completely out of place. It did cause bodily injuries to me including an injured back and neck. Additionally, I believe I have re-torn ligaments in which I previously had surgically repaired. My major concern is that my airbag did not deploy.
