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.

Recently, my Fj cruiser loses brakes and it has almost made me get into a couple accidents. The brake peddle will go all the way to the floor and I have had to use my E-brake to stop. Pumping the brake use to work but now the brakes wont come back for a while. This happens at any mph and the brake have even gone out when I'm stationary.

Bad vibration when applying the brakes. End result was the rotors, brake pads, and both calipers had to be replaced!! an $800 bill! dealer stated it was probably due to road salt errosion!! these vehicles are promoted as off-road/4WD go anywhere vehicles! I have never had to replace calipers on any vehicle I've ever owned. I feel it has to do with the quality of steel they use in these vehicles as I've had to also replace the transmission coolers lines due to rust errosion/leaking of the metal lines! the frame, skid plates and under frame metal are all flaking with rust errosion.

The chassis is so corroded and full of rust it has got to a point of loosing the strength and integrity of the whole body. This is very worrisome specially if the car is involved in an accident where the front part chassis cannot resist the impact. This has to be recalled by Toyota or at least fixed in some way like they did with the Tacoma and Tundra.

When I put my foot on the brake pedal, the SUV starts to shake. I had my rotors resurfaced and it went away. Now it's back. I spoke with a certifiedtoyota mechanic. He told me that the trucks are known for having under sized rotor and brake pads and that is why that happens. I could buy a new rotors and it would still happen. Is what he told me. I would like to see a recall on all Toyota trucks and SUVS. Thank you

Vehicle was brought into shop with very hard to apply brakes. Vehicle had blown fuse for a.B.S. and repeatedly kept blowing fuse when installed. This design of brake system uses an electric motor and accumulator for power assist and without this working it has no power assist. There is no way anyone could stop this vehicle quickly in an emergency situation. I believe this is a very serious issue that needs to be addressed. I am an a.S.E. master certified technician.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Fj cruiser. The contact stated that while driving approximately 35 mph, the instrument panel lighting and gauges began to fluctuate erratically as the vehicle suddenly stalled. The contact was able to restart the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing where the technician advised that the ABS system would have to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. In addition, the instrument panel lighting would not illuminate and gauges would not provide a reading. The contact was able to restart the vehicle but the brakes would not respond. After shutting the engine off the vehicle could not be restarted. The contact inspected the vehicle and discovered that the battery was melted. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnostic testing where the technician advised that the battery, wiring harness, alternator and the fuse box would have to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 75,000.
