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

May 212010


  • 141,000 miles


My wife and I own a 2001 Toyota Sequoia. On 5/21/10, the right front ball bearings failed. The brake line snapped and the wheel fell under the car. Luckily my wife had just turned onto a road and was going at a slow speed and was able to pull to the side - especially since she is 8 months pregnant. This seems to be consistent with problems that led to a recall of the same model vehicle for 2004-2007. Toyota said that this was not part of a recall and there was nothing they could do about it. It seemed important to make you aware of this as I am certain that this would have been much worse if my wife was traveling at higher speeds. It is especially disconcerting that this same issue was found in later models of the same vehicle.
