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.

2003 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 112015

Highlander Limited V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 108,000 miles


This car is well maintained since I own and fix several classic cars. The ABS speed sensor is on each wheel is a magnet function. The part is prone to collect dirt on it and/or the simple gear like component that rotates with the wheel and senses when a wheel locks up when hard braking or other causes. These parts obviously are very inexpensive to make but each Sensor (4 on a 4 wheel drive) cost between $160 to $220 each for the part from parts stores and more from Toyota parts department. In "snow and ice country" they can easily get impacted by road salt, etc.
