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.

2009 Toyota Yaris Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 212009


  • 15 miles


Toyota Yaris, 2009, sedan, 4dr, 7 months of use, strong bad odor problems with the air conditioner unit, took the car to the dealer and they performed a replacement of the air filters, the dealer informed me that it was fixed but before I reached my house the problem was there again. Took the car to the dealer again and this time the service representative informed me that all the Toyota Yaris 2009 have the same bad odor problem in the air conditioner unit, and that it was a manufacturer defect. I asked for a fix to this problem but the answer I received from the dealer service representative was that they are still collecting complaints and information to request a recall or fix from the Toyota company, which can take an indefinite amount of time. Meanwhile I am stock with the problem and no other options available to fix it.
