What exactly are TSBs?

I've read a bunch for the 4th gen and wondered how they work. I went into toyota and asked but they didnt know what I was talking about...

Technical Service Bulletin. It is basically an amendment to the preexisting repair manual. It is not a recall or an increase in warranty coverage, just repair instructions that will help dealers pinpoint an issue and know how to fix it.

An amendment, and a tips and tricks section. When vehicles have issues and the dealers fix them the problems and repairs are logged with the manufacturer. Certain problems are more difficult to diagnose or repair. And sometimes the original repair method is not right and is "amended".

Example: an abnormally high number of "Prius'" develop a creaking in the front end. As the number of complaints and repairs pile up, Toyota goes through them and find a repair that works better than others. To save time and money they issue a TSB. this tells the techs that if they encounter a Prius exhibiting a creak in the front end, how to check it and the appropriate repair.

^^exactly.

i love it when people insist TSB's are issues that need to be resolved under warranty or a recall based repair. not so. alot of people are missinformed and than get an attitude when they are educated b/c its not what they truely wanna hear.
