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.

Highlander Hybrid 6-cyl

  • miles


Vehicle became unstable and wobbling, almost caused accident with loss of control, while in motion and displayed warning messages for brake and vehicle stability control with code P0A7A and possible other codes. Vehicle was taken to tyson's Toyota where it was diagnosed as having a defective hybrid inverter and requires $8000+ in repairs. We contacted Toyota and 2 days later they concluded that this is not a defect and no assistance will br provided for the repairs. This issue is similar/identical to another Toyota recall number 11V342000.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota highland hybrid. While the contact was driving 20 mph, the hybrid system warning indicator illuminated with a sudden loss of power. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer who detected an accumulation of water within the hybrid battery. The technician stated the water originated from the rear sub frame area and as a result of the failure, the frame exhibited two cracks and two holes. The vehicle had not been repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the defect. The failure mileage was 55,000.
