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.

hard and jerking shifting. slow take off, hard shift into r

Toyota dealership says only new transmission. $5,400. No talk about ECM had an extended warranty for 2001-2003. Many people also report 2004-2005. My car was made in Sept. 2004. Send email of everything to CEO of Toyota in Japan. No answer, probably wrong email address.

Sending it to a Circuit Board Medics that has worked on lots of these. Toyota dealership knew nothing and was to get back to me.....nothing as of 20 days. New transmission but no new ECM. 3rd Toyota Land Cruiser, Camery Rav4---my daughter wanted.

I am over Toyota....expense but use to be worth it for a great product.

NO LONGER A GREAT PRODUCT.
