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.

Highlander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

1. notice or recall received ssc 40B Highlander child protection lock system safety recall 2. contacted 2 Toyota dealerships to schedule an appointment and the national customer service line and was advised that appointments were not available but cars were taken in the order received on a given day with prior days cars being serviced first. 3. I attempted to set an appointment at the convenience of both dealerships this week, next week, next month or even two months away when I could take my vehicle in and have the 30 minute (approximately) repair completed within a reasonable time. I was told that no such appointment could be made and that I had the choice of bringing the car in between 7:00 a.M. and 9:00 a.M. and that it would be done in a hour and a half to three or four hours. Toyota in their recall notice promises "any Toyota dealer will modify the cpl lever at no cost to you in as convenient a manner as possible." It further states "make an appointment."
