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

Nov 242007

Highlander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The driver's side windshield wiper has a nut which repeatedly comes loose. This causes the windshield wiper to become loose and cease to function. The dealer says that the mechanism was designed to come loose so as to avoid damage to the underlying motor. He said to just keep tightening the nut! in the 27,000 mile life of the vehicle, I have had to tighten it now a total of 3 times. The last time was 6 weeks ago during a snow storm. The inability to correct the problem constitutes a safety hazard due to a design flaw.
