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.

2009 Toyota Land Cruiser Owner Comments

problem #1

Land Cruiser

Transmission is slipping. Transmission hesitates in low gears going around corners at low speeds. Also, transmission at 75mph cruise momentarily dropped out of gear, engine RPM went up by 500 RPM, and then dropped back into gear. These are have at infrequent and random times. Have been told by dealers that this is drive by wire and that there are many electronic systems involved in controlling the transmission. Have complained to 2 Toyota dealers. One told me it was a software issue and that Toyota was working on a fix. Second dealer told me that there was no Toyota service bulletins on transmission problems. Concern of transmission going out of gear and losing control of vehicle.
