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.

2006 Toyota Highlander Owner Comments

When braking our 2006 Toyota Highlander the brakes seem to catch then release, catch and release. This is on dry pavement. The local Toyota dealer service says this is normal operation and is because the battery recharging mechanism is taking over. This may be true but I am of the opinion that there is something wrong. When you apply the brakes and it reacts in the way it does you tend to want to easy up on the brakes because the car lurches a bit but that is the wrong thing to do!
