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

Highlander 6-cyl

When driving my Toyota Highlander on the highway with the windows rolled down, a piercing high pitch sound elevates and hurts your ear that you cannot hear anything (practically deaf). I've informed Toyota customer assistance center (chad) about this problem in January 2003, they claimed there is nothing they can do about it. One of the mechanics at Toyota service center, stated that he had complaints from other consumers and apparently this problem is with all their SUV. I've also asked several of our friends (Highlander owners) to test drive their vehicles with their windows rolled down and they've also experienced the same problem. We basically purchased a vehicle that you cannot be rolled down the window when driving.
