    Welcome to PriusChat!!
    "..Register at toyota.com/owners, and you can see the history of work performed, as well as unfulfilled recall/safety campaign repairs. TSBs aren't as easy, but then again the nature of these are to alert technicians to common problems, in order to save time and prevent needless parts-changing.."

    I bought my 07 new and still live in the same house when I bought it. Only TSB's I have received from Toyota were the inverter coolant pump recall and replacement long time ago like 9 years ago and the steering shaft ink replacement and then during the run away Toyota crisis the gas pedal modification where they cut off about 2 inches off the bottom of the gas pedal so it couldn't get stuck and jammed by a floor mat.
    I had all those done for free at the dealer.

    All of these were a long time ago. Only one you really need is the steering shaft upgrade where they replaced the intermediate link that could possibly fail and you could lose steering. Gotta have that one.

    Lots of people move around after buying there cars and never get those notices so very possible your car never saw any of those.
