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.

FJ Cruiser

  • 13,837 miles


Known problem by manufacturers. Extreme damage to wiring harness and components within engine compartment by rodent. Vehicle has 13,837 miles only. New wiring standards reportedly draw rodents and/or increase amount of damage to vehicle systems. Vehicle was parked less than 7 hours and when turned ignition to vehicle, instrument panel illuminated every safety warning to include engine light flashing. Engine sputtered and required tow. Insurance company reports high number of claims especially related to newer cars with wiring. Damage to wiring if driven could cause vehicle systems to fail, fire and could cause grave risk of injury or death to operator and passengers. Manufacturer does not cover in warranty nor provides preventive remedy to issue.
