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
  • 8,000 miles
It is not possible to safely drive the Toyota Highlander 2004 with the Michelin 225/65/R17 tires sold as original equipment in any kind of snow conditions. Even with as little as 1-2 inches of snow these tires on the Highlander trap and build up snow in the wheel well leaving the driver with no stopping ability.
