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 #1

Jan 172010


  • 85,000 miles


The throttle stuck in the closed position while we were traveling on the highway maintaining 65 mph. The vsc and engine lights came on. There was suddenly no acceleration and response from the pedal so we came to a stop on the side of the road with the car in drive and the engine still on. I had a near collision when this happened a week prior in the middle of an intersection and the acceleration was lost. This is fixed temporarily by turning the engine off and back on again 5 minutes later. I had to get the whole throttle body replaced. This happened at 85,000 miles. This happened with the same vehicle at 48,000 miles 3 years ago and they seemed to fix it by cleaning the throttle control sensor really good. I've seen reports of others experiencing this as well on line. This should be a recall item...thank god we are still alive!
