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

Toyota Highlanders SUV brake lights for years 2002-2003 has a serious issue with either the left or right brake lighting. My wife's 2003 Toyota limited edition Highlander right rear brake light stop working on 25 June 2010. After reading and learning many other Toyota Highlanders owners are having the same issue, I had to submit this, since Toyota has not announced a recall for this problem. Please click here for other comments from Toyota Highlander's owner: I worry about this issue since so many owners have paid a great deal of money trying to have this is resolved, and the only reply/respond they receive from the dealership tech's are more money and a statement informing them that there is not a recall. I also worry about this because what would my wife say to a police officer if she is cited repeatedly? please assist in serious matter.
