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

After a lifelong search for the ideal vehicle I purchased my 2002 Toyota Sequoia. It's still my ideal vehicle; however, on 10 July of this year the spare tire mount rusted to the point that the spare dropped to the road.

I had the local Toyota service department look at it and they said that there is a hole in the frame and that the vehicle will not pass inspection. I am still working with my service rep to find out if they can replace the frame. My belief is that the money I will spend to do that is much less than I would have to pay if I have to buy a vehicle with no trade-in.

I called Toyota USA and they called back and said that the campaign to address frame rust has expired, so no help there.

I'm 70 years old and I was hoping that this was the last vehicle I would ever have to buy...

Took it to the dealer under the recall in July 2014, to get the frame either sprayed or replaced (haha). Rust was so bad they had to spray it twice (on areas other than the frame as well). Coating from the dealer was so thick it was dripping off and took forever to dry. The dealer refused to replace the frame so now 1 year later we have 6" chunks of rusted frame peeling off.
