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.

2001 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

problem #3

Apr 092007

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


We tried to open the back hatch and the handle was broken. There is no other way to open the hatch. Because of this, my husband had to crawl over the seats and pull our heavy luggage out the other direction while the shuttle was waiting to take us to the airport. We had to spend $200 to repair this problem in addition to our other problems with this vehicle.

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
Tracking control and emergency brake lights stay on all the time. Have had the problem fixed twice, but within a week or 2, the lights come back on and stay on incessantly. Toyota service center says "there is nothing they can do about it", so I have lived with it for 4+ years now. The brakes shake the entire vehicle when applied, they feel warped or bumpy. Again, "there is nothing they can do about it".

Faulty latch on rear hatch. Unable to open with either key or with remote. It is stuck because it may have something defective with either the latch or the lock.
