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 #2

Jul 052007

Sequoia 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 121,390 miles


Brake, ABS, skid control warning lights on, dealer service checked and recommended replacing battery which was done by them. Following day warning lights still on intermittently, returned to dealer for service but the warning lights would not come on while the dealer had it. Was advised it was not a safety issue, just malfunctioning warning lights. Now( October 2007) the lights are always on and when returned to dealer for service again was told this time it was the skid control ECU, and recommend replacing skid control ECU. Was also told it that the ABS and skid control were not functioning when lights were on so handling would be affected (safety issue ). at this time I am gathering information on whether it should be replaced or not.

Sequoia 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Purchased a Toyota Sequoia 7/01. Been in and out of service ever since. We are currently on our 3rd set of brakes, 3rd trip computer, and 3rd set of tires, 2nd battery, 2nd amplifier. Car only has 33,000 miles many other problems including some electrical. Currently waiting for word from dealership on problems with transmission and fuel system. Everything up to this point (except tires #3) has been covered by warranty. Dealership got a case # with Toyota so these problems will be covered if they persist. Feel like we are on the path to a lemon. Don't know how else to proceed. Sent Toyota a letter detailing problems, asking to possibly help us get into another vehicle. We are at the point where it is a new concern everyday with this car. Help!!!!!!
