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

Sequoia SR5 4.7L V8

This is a very serious problem due to not having access to the spare tire in severe weather and critical conditions. Also limited exit ability in minor to severe situations. If my wife and children are stranded in harsh conditions they would have no access to the spare tire, or if traded in an accident, no access through the back door. The sad fact is that many people have to replace these repeatedly! Is this a money making scam with the auto industry? This handle is also currently broken on my Toyota Sienna! I now own two Toyota products with identical broken handles!
