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.

2002 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

Highlander Limited V6

This truck is terrible. Toyota's reputation is nto deserved. I used American cars until now and I regret getting this Toyota. I also regret buying American cars due to the bailouts recently. I don't believe the unions or car companies deserve to survive at this point. they both contributed to their situation. I think I'll switch to a Honda or other make in the future.

I also had an issue with the A/C / heater fan which is stuck on high or it's off. I lost all control of the function. I was told its not just the switch, the internal computer needs to be replaced. It's ridiculous.
