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

  • 17,200 miles


Car was driven from home location at approximately 3 pm on February 4, 2015. After a quarter of a mile an audible warning sounded and the car began to slow. A flashing warning to the effect of "hybrid system failure, stop car immediately" appeared on the instrument panel. Car continued to slow to about 1 mph. Pulled car to side of road and turned it off. Consulted owners manual which suggested trying to restart the car. Restarted. The same warning reappeared. Tried one more cycle with no success. Towed to dealer next day. They were not able to replicate condition. This unexpected condition has grave safety implications. Consider driving at highway speed in dense traffic and having the vehicle effectively shut off.
