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.

The drivers seat mount (left front) failed causing the seat to become loose and rock. The seat mount beneath the carpet had failed, allowing the mounting bolt to fall off. The metal bracket had to be welded with new, stronger metal and the bolt reattached with spot welds. This failure is wide spread among all Toyota 4 runners from 1995-2002; Toyota is aware and has failed to address this defect; all should be recalled and repaired.
