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.

Sequoia SR5 8.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 58,000 miles

I bought this SUV with 35000 miles and less than a year later the transmission failed, I called Toyota for help and they refused to help, and the manufacture warranty was just expired. I end up paying $35000 for this stupid Sequoia out of my Pocket.

Toyota knew that a lot of 2001-03 Sequoia transmission has been fail but they don't care to help.

Shame on Toyota.
