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.

2001 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

I bought a 2001 Toyota Highlander in Aug 2001. The 1st time I had a problem with the gas pedal was about a month later when I went to pull in at work. I parked up by the building and put on my brakes and the car revved up and I put on the brakes and it did want to stop. I finally got it stopped and sat there and wondered what had just happen. I let it go as I did not have an explanation. Everything was find up to the year 2009. I was taking my mom and brother to the grocery and mom is 86 yrs and I parked in a handicap spot that had a pole in front where the handicap sign was. My brother was in the front seat with me and to my amazement when I put on the brakes the car revved up and I had to push on the brake real hard. I did hit the pole and jarred all of us. I feel like this car model should be looked into.
