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. Notes: The FJ Cruiser's retro style is actually one of the car's biggest flaws, according to Consumer Reports, because it can affect the driver's visibility.

FJ Cruiser

  • 10,600 miles


I have purchased an Fj cruiser from city Toyota in daly city, ca on 7/12/2012. During my 15,000 mi maintenance check up, the service manager discovered that the lug nut studs on the wheels broke when he was torquing. He admitted that they were made in china and that he has forwarded this issue to Toyota Corp because he said it's factory-related and have encountered similar issues. I am very concerned whether the new replacement studs they will put in my truck would be safe or as dangerous as the previous. I have researched online and have seen numerous factory studs that are defective. They I don't have the vehicle now and have been driving a rental car they paid for. I cant go to work out of state since they restricted me from using the rental car outside ca.

Steering wheel begins shakes at speeds of 50 to 60 mph. Have balanced, road balanced tires and still the steering wheel shakes, at this speed I am concerned there is something with the suspension/tires that may cause a crash in the future.
