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

problem #1

May 042006

Highlander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5 miles


When I use the A/C and turn it off a bad odor comes from the vent. This is a new 2006 Highlander, the next day I brought it to the dealer he said take for service, they told me to drive it for a few more days. I put 1500 miles and the odor is still there. I took it for service again. The mechanic said to use a deodorizer on the vent. I am not a satisfied customer. I want this issue resolved. I paid for the Highlander not the smell that came with it.
