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 left rear tire blew out, I didn't hit anything prior, and I tried to control the vehicle and bring it to a stop. I got it to be about 40 mph before I hit the cement railing on the bridge.

I bought this car when the mileage was 36000. I still own this truck, the problem I have with this vehicle is too much noise coming from the rear side. I took it to Toyota dealer and was told the bearing is bad on one side of the wheel. I got both rear bearing replaced but the noise remain the same.I talk to Toyota but no fix at all. Still driving it with ear plug.

FJ Cruiser

  • 3,000 miles
After accelerating from low speeds the steering sometimes has a large amount of movement left & right from very small steering inputs. Resulting in a "death wobble" sort of a feeling. This happened before and after a lift kit and tires were installed.
