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.

2005 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 232007

Highlander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles


Purchased new Toyota Highlander 2005 model year in July 2005. Vehicle was parked in driveway since. Vehicle only has 23,000 miles. Corrossion developed within 9 months of purchase in these areas: Base of antenna, antenna mast, window frames, and aluminum or alloy wheels show bubbling in the surface that are increasing in size and diameter.* dealership and Toyota were contacted to remedy problems with wheels without success. Dealership repainted corroded windows. Dealership and Toyota claim corrosion is due to environment - I have had 2 other vehicles parked in the same location without visible signs of corrossion. I am concern that the continued expansion of the bubbles and corrossion on the wheels will create a safety hazard if it weakens the structural integrity of the whees.
