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.

2002 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 092009


  • 91,000 miles


While making a turn on the road the rear trunk opened spilling all contents out on the highway. The latch has been an issue before - appears locked but really is not. This could have caused an accident with someone behind me not to mention that if a child (or animal) was in the rear of the vehicle they would have fallen out. The latch was rusted and had to be replaced to the tune of over $300. Toyota has acknowledged that this is a problem but not on the recall list. This should be - along with the leather seats peeling and the rust all over the bottom of the vehicle. I had to also replace stability links (not ball joints which are under recall) rods as well - to the tune of almost 1K...also rusted. There appears to be a significant rusting issue with these particular vehicles! (Toyota Sequoia 2002).
