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.

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #2

FJ Cruiser 4WD 6-cyl

  • 68,000 miles


A vehicle was traveling very slowly on a rural interstate as my Toyota Fj cruiser approached in the same lane. The driver of the Fj cruiser braked quickly to avoid hitting the slow moving vehicle. However, an 18-wheeler behind it could not stop fast enough. It rear-ended my Fj cruiser sending the front-end colliding directly into the back of the slow moving vehicle. As the 18-wheeler continued forward, my Fj cruiser was squeezed out from between the two vehicles and pushed into another lane. Both the driver and passenger of my Fj cruiser were transported to the hospital for injuries. No airbags deployed at any time during the collision with the slow moving vehicle. Extensive damage to the front and rear of my vehicle resulted in a total loss.

Loss of brakes, tried to stop. Both feet applied to brakes and nothing. This was a T stop with a 20' drop on the other side of the road. This was on a road driven constantly in our neighborhood. Turned the car to the right went over the curb through a yard hit a fire hydrant took it across the street jumped the other curb and stopped in brush. There were no skid marks in the grass or road where the breaks had been applied. Drivers side air bag ripped or shredded at bottom did not inflate fully, passengers did inflate correctly. No one was hurt seriously or taken by ems.
