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.

1-cruise control over-speeding. It was observed that the cruise control system exceed the set vehicle speed in these three conditions 1A.one the cruise control resumes speed after deceleration. 1B.whilst the vehicle negotiate uphill driving condition 1C. If there is a strong head wind. This will keep the driver distracted to just monitor his/her speed so that he/she will not get flashed for speeding ! 2-speedometer reading deviation compare with gps speed reading when the odometer reading is 87.5 mph you are actually doing $81.88 mph. 3-ABS abnormal operation when brake is applied on unpaved pebbles laden road. It was observed that you lose breaking power or the car applies the break so strong in a way it panic the driver which might lead to a crash, this behavior of the breaks is irrelevant to the depressing pressure on the break pedal by the driver. 4-A/C airflow foot mode air flowing at windshield defogger. It was observed that if the (foot only) mode is selected the air will get out of the foot exist as well as the upper windshield defogger and if used with the A/C switched on it will lead to condensation of the fog on the front windshield (as cold air will cool down the windshield) which will block the visibility! 5-rear camera monitor exhibits dark patch on both upper and lower corners of the screen (if fitted) ! 6-remote start function exhibit starter motor over-run condition after engine has started (if the car has a remote startup-facility) I have taken the issues with the local Agency of my car in my country and I would like to know if you have similar complains about the same with regards to the us version of the Fj cruiser 2009. It will be great if you investigate these complains as the factory is denying that there is any manufacturer defects ! which I totally disagree as I am sure there is a manufacturer defects which the factory is trying to hide in order to avoid a recall. If you have any question query please contact me.
