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 second row seat backs move back and forth when in the locked position--they seem very loose--the Toyota dealer says this is normal--could this be a safety issue?

My car was rear ended while I was stopped at a yield sign waiting to merge onto a parkway. The small car that hit me was probably traveling at approximately 30 mph. The collision caused my driver's seat to move forward and it stopped just before I hit the steering wheel. Toyota inspected the seat on May 8, 2013 and their legal department advised me by letter dated June 13, 2013 that there was no evidence to reveal a manufacturing or design defect with the seat. Toyota said that they would not "honor" the claim for repair/replacement of the power seat mechanism because it "moved through its entire range of motion" upon inspection.

The contact owns a 2013 Toyota 4runner. The contact stated that the rear middle seat would move forward and backward independently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who advised that the seat was operating as designed. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was not available. The failure and current mileage was 400.

2nd row seat of the non third row option. The 60% part of the seat has a lot of wiggle play to it. I feel it is a safety concern with regard to car seats and passenger security. People who have rode on this side of the seat have gotten nauseated from sitting there and did not feel secure with the seat moving around. Complaint made to Toyota with no action made to this point.
