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.

problem #2

Highlander 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,000 miles


The contact stated the tires had to be replaced at 23,000 miles. The dealership told her to call Bridgestone, and Bridgestone said they did not warranted tires that came from the dealership. She has to replace the tires today. She reported not noticing anything wrong with the tires prior to this. She maintained the car well. She has the tires rotated to the recommend rotations. The recommended psi on the tires was 35.
