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.

2011 Toyota 4Runner Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 012012

4Runner 6-cyl

  • 38,500 miles


While the vehicle was sitting and idling the engine light came on along with vse light and experienced rough idling and erratic throttle response. When my wife tried to put in reverse and back out no throttle was produced to move vehicle. She turned car off and restarted engine light remained on along with vse light. She was able to make it home with rough idling and extremely erratic throttle response. This happened one other time within a five day window until we were able to get to the dealership for service appointment. Dealership contends throttle body is bad at 39,000 miles due to the three problems codes pulled from vehicle. Although scheduled preventative maintenance was performed @ 30,000 miles with throttle body cleaning this part still failed. The erratic throttle response from this part is very dangerous for anyone that experiences this while driving.
