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.

2013 Toyota 4Runner Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 212013


  • 2,300 miles


The contact owns a 2013 Toyota 4runner. The contact stated that the rear driver side seat belt seized and trapped the child. The more she tried to un-latch the seat belt the tighter it became causing a great deal of pain to the child. After a considerable amount of time, she decided to cut the seat belt and the child escaped. A dealer was notified but stated because the vehicle was not purchased at that location they could not assist. The manufacturer was notified and stated they would send someone to investigate in 2-3 days but 3 weeks later, she had still not heard from the representative. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure and current mileage was 2,300.
