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.

While driving, the navigation/radio screen shuts off and seems to re-boot repeatedly. It is frustrating when using the radio, and dangerous when the navigation system goes blank while we are depending on it to get us to our destination. We have had to immediately pull off the road to wait for it to come back on-line and now we resort to using our smart phone as a back-up because the navigation system on the vehicle is not dependable. It has always happened while driving of coursem as that's when it is being used. This just started happening June 10th and has happened 4 times in less than 2 weeks

Door locks will not lock/unlock. Affects key fob door locks and remote start capability. Internet search revealed that door lock actuators are a common issue with these vehicles.

While driving, the entire electronic panel that controls the radio, navigation, rear view camera and other functions will freeze and then reset. It will happen multiple times in some instances causing a loss of control over the systems the system controls. This has been addressed on multiple forums but Toyota doesn't seem to want to address a possible recall. It isn't obvious what is causing the system to freeze for multiple minutes at a time.

Yesterday morning when starting my 2014 4runner the trac off light stayed illuminated along with the check engine light. I took the vehicle to the dealership and it was discovered that the vehicle was damaged by rodents (chewing, droppings). An electrical wire had been completely chewed through. I turned the damage into my insurance company but am out a days work, $50 deductible, $100 deposit for rental vehicle and $5.10 tax daily on the rental. I believe this is all due to the soy being added to the vehicle electrical wiring (and anything else that is soy based) literally ringing the dinner bell for vermin.
