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

Oct 122005

Highlander 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 140 miles


Toyota Highlander hybrid-I have lost ABS brakes, stability control and power steering along with the hybrid engine on two occasions with my 2 week old 2006 Highlander. I have brought it to the dealer twice-the first time they found "malfunction codes" and "rebooted" the computer and told me it was operating as "designed, " only to happen again 2 days later. Currently, they are replacing a computer. Date of incident and purchase of vehicle is actually 2006 but is not an option below. I am concerned it will happen again and result in an accident in the future.
