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.

problem #2

4Runner SR5 3.0L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 189,000 miles


OK, we had thought that we got a good truck in this 95 4Runner.....nope. It should be called the Toyota $Runner!!!!

I remember the day vividly. We had just pulled out of the parking lot at the doctor's office and....BAM, the check engine light came on. We were wondering what was up but didn't have the funds to take it in, cause you know we spent all our money on GAS for this thing cause it guzzles it with no real power, isn't it supposed to be a V6? Anyways, we just ran it and ran it and finally got the codes read. Yeah, so we changed both the oxygen sensors, cause you know they need two. Then we changed the Mass Air Flow Sensor and did a major tune FAILED SMOG!!!!!! Thanks $Runner....thanks.

We were now driving a gross polluter around thinking oh, it just has a bad spark plug or a loose wire. Took it in for diagnostics at a local auto shop, nope, they said you have a leaky/blown head gasket. AHHHHHH!!!!!! Our $Runner now had over 209 thousand miles on it and the auto shop said it's better to get a new engine or scrap it. So we scrapped it and got some money. Now we are without a car because our $Runner decided to take a crap. Thanks, NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!
