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.

problem #1

(reported on)

Highlander 4WD

  • miles
When opening the back window the entire vehicle began to vibrate wildly and there was terrible pressure in the drivers ears along with a loud noise, the driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle and after some trial and error the driver discovered that the problem could be alleviated by opening the front windows first, the dealer was notified and told the consumer that all Highlanders experience this problem due to the aerodynamics.
