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

Dec 032008


  • 179 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Toyota Yaris. The day running lights on the vehicle are extremely bright. When driving at night, it appears that your standard head lights are lit; instead, the day runnings lights remain illuminated. When this occurs, the standard head lights and the rear lights are in the off position which nearly resulted in several collisions. The dealer inspected the vehicle and confirmed that the front head lights are extremely bright and there were no after market products available per the manufacturer to correct the failure. The contact will also speak with the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 179 and the current mileage was 1000.
