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.

My wife was at a red light waiting for the light to change when she was hit on the driver side front fender and tire area. No air bag deployed there is over 8,000 dollars in damages the other driver was moving 35+ mph at impact so now along with the whiplash and shoulder bruises and seat belts cuts there mental damage she feel the vehicle is not safe and is afraid to drive it when repaired in closing I feel at the speed of travel on impact the air bag should have deployed.

4Runner 6-cyl

This 2000 Toyota 4runner was being driven less than 30mph when a knock was heard coinciding with sloppy handling. Tail pipe was ripped from muffler. 4W drive had been in use for a few days due to snow, this happened when the truck was put back into 2wd. Brought the truck into my mechanic thinking steering/suspension problem, wrong! was informed that the frame was rusted out and couldn't be fixed. My mechanic remembered having the same problem with a few Tacoma pickups and suggested looking for recalls or service bulletins relating to this problem. There aren't any. However, if you do an internet search entering "Toyota 4runner frame rot" you'll be amazed at what shows up. Owners who have well maintained their 4runners and Tacoma from this era are bringing their trucks in for routine service and are finding out that they're lucky that they weren't killed or injured because of frame failure. Other owners haven't been as lucky. Just go to aboutautomobile.com and look up "2000 4runner frame complaints" and there are 36 hits. That's just one model year and one web site.this is dangerous. It's not obvious until there's a big problem. The frame rots from the inside. Most interesting was the mechanic who had his fingers go through the frame while trying pull himself under to look at something. It seems, after reading comments on the internet concerning this issue, that Toyota feels this is not their problem. It should concern them that they made 4runners that, while still looking great after many years on the road, are subject to unexpected catastrophic failure. My son and my 2 young granddaughters were in this vehicle when the frame broke.
