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

problem #1

May 222007

Highlander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


Sun visors on 2002 Toyota Highlanders did not stay in position and interfered with driver visibility- the sun visors will not stay in the up position and will drop down into the driver's eyes while driving. Furthermore, the sun visors were rendered useless as they will not stay in position when in use. The driver is forced to either not use the visor, a hazard when driving into the sun, or must slump down in the seat and use the visor in the completely down position. Both the passenger and driver's visors are affected. This was a known issue with 2002 Highlanders as documented on owner's web forums.
