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.

problem #2

  • 150,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Toyota Sequoia. The contact stated that while driving 60 mph the vsc warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. As a result, the vehicle vibrated, the steering pulled to the right, and the vehicle decelerated for approximately fifteen to twenty seconds. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was advised to replace the yaw sensor, steering angle sensor and skid sensor. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but offered no assistance. The failure mileage was 150,000.

The front braking system on 2001 Sequoia was replaced and upgraded. The brake jobs were performed at the following mileages: 15K, 25K, 30K, 55K, and 74K miles. The left wheel rattled over the rough road, the rear left strut made a noise when going over bumps due to a broken shock, and the engine light had come on.
