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

Sequoia Limited

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


SUV usually parked outside the garage: TRAC light comes on usually in the morning. Local usage= half mile drive to school. When parked and turned off, problem disappears the next time car is started. When taken to the dealer, by the time they inspect- problem is gone.

Sequoia SR5 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,000 miles

I had a ford Explorer before then changed to my present 2002 Toyota Sequoia which I purchased new, I was just exploring on Google and decided to check the complaints and was surprised to see the many things I can expect as I continue to increase the mileage on my Sequoia, one item I took as nothing, I now see will become a major problem soon.

I was comming from a rolling position slowly entering onto the highway, I acclerated to get on and felt a bucking, and a noise comming from I think was the left front wheel, the tracking light was on,this continued for a short time and then stopped, the tracking light stayed on, so I pulled over shut the car off and started it again, the light went off, but I continued to experience the same problem about three times after that, each time I would shut the vehicle off and start again.

After parking the vehicle, then driving it two days later the problem has not reoccured, I also notice that the vehicle has shut off a few times when I come to a full stop but I start right up and continue no problems yet.

Looks like time to get rid of thisToyota Sequoia before I get to hate Toyota
