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.

There is buckling of the body, right and left side, under hood approximately where the hood hinges attach to body. The mechanic has advised it is a weak point in the body which on some vehicles the body actually cracks and transfers over to the fender over time. It looks like it is due to vibration from the body front end to the rear firewall. The estimated cost to fix this problem from a Toyota certified body shop is $11,837.02. I have filed a complaint with Toyota corporate, and it is pending. Toyota doesn't seem to want to take responsibility.

Every time I drive between 60 to 65 mph the steering wheel shakes back and forth. Also the front end shakes. It can be difficult to control at times. Had tires re-balanced and the 4 wheel alignment checked. I have also had the front end checked. Everything checks out. This appears to be a dangerous situation that seems common in a large population of fj's on the road.
