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

Drivers side sun visor fall down into drivers view without warning, blocking the drivers view and creating a serious safety issue. The drivers visor will not stay in place on my 2002 Toyota Highlander. There is no visible defect with the visor and no damage to the vehicle that caused this problem to start. Judging from the web site "" there are a lot of people with this problem. Cost to replace the visor with home link garage door opener in it costs over $600, causing many people to try many different poor methods of fixing this safety problem.

Both sun visors on my 2002 Toyota Highlander have come loose due to a manufacturing defect. They will fall while driving and obscure the driver's vision, creating a safety issue. Nothing has been done to correct this problem.
