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.

05-14-2010 I have been very concerned about this fender bulge and /cracking problem on the fj's. well it was my turn, a bulge right there on the drivers side crumple zone. Lets face it, if the crumple zone is already crumpled before you get in an accident, how is it going to help you if you get into an accident. I took it to the dealer, they contacted the fts, field technician specialist. The fts wanted to see if the fj to see if it was stock. I did have one modification. After reading everything I could get my hands from the forums members on this subject I decided to have a readylift® leveling kit, installed in the front only to prevent the tires from hitting the inter fender wells. The lift only raised the front 2.25 inches and the drive remained the same. Any modification problems that Toyota may have a problem with can be handled with a copy of the magnuson ¿ moss warranty act of 1975. The field technician specialist checked out bulge on the driver's side crumple and they verified front inner fender was bulged and recommend the replacement of the right & left front inner fenders. 06-28-2010 I got the fj back from the body shop on Thursday the 24th. Both the apron sub-assemblies & reinforcement sub-assemblies were replaced. Under the hood I couldn't even tell if it was worked on. After all that I have read and the folks I have talked to I¿M glad Toyota stepped up to the plate and fixed the problem. Let's hope it stays fixed.

I have an 07 Toyota Fj cruiser & I checked out my inner fender and saw 2 cracks after reading an online forum complaint board about this issue. My good friend who also has an 07 Fj cruiser has the same exact problem as well. There are cracks on both sides of my inner fender. My passenger side has a bulge around the crack as well. My wife drives our small children (infants) around and I am very concerned. I read many places this is a design flaw by Toyota. Please help as this is a major safety issue and should never crack as it has.

2007 Fj cruiser was serviced by big island Toyota multiple times in 2008. February 11, 2008 - 31649 miles ¿ 30,000 mile service, includes under vehicles inspection. April 16, 2008 - 33007 miles ¿ safety check inspection, spark plug replacement, cabin filter replacement August 20, 2008 - 34418 miles ¿ stereo inspection for warranty issue August 27, 2008 ¿ 34582 miles - warranty replacement of broken stereo the February 11 service states the following parts under vehicle were marked "checked and okay": shock absorbers / suspension steering gear box / linkage and boots / ball joints / dust covers muffler / exhaust pipes / mountings engine oil and fluid leaks brake lines / hoses / parking brake cable drive shaft boots / constant velocity boots / U-joints / transmission linkage transmission / differential / transfer case fuel lines and connections / fuel tank band / fuel tank vapor vent system hoses inspect nuts and bolts on body chassis the April 16 service marked all components as app'd, including multiple components that would have required the technician to be under the vehicle. We chose big island Toyota to perform our service as we were under the impression that we were getting the best service for our Toyota vehicle. The corrosion discovered in December was so complete that there was no way it wasn't present during previous services and Toyota did not point it out when they were under the vehicle. Neglecting to call attention to the problem during previous paid services prevented us from being able to address the corrosion issue before parts began to fall off and perforate the frame. At this point big island Toyota has declared that the vehicle has no value whatsoever and they will no longer provide service to us at the dealership.
