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 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles


My 2002 Toyota Sequoia is emitting a foul, rotten egg, sulfurous smell from the exhaust. My vehice only has 2000 miles on it and the catalytic converter has been replaced once. I cotacted the manufacturer and was told that the smell is a bi-product of the sulfur in the fuel not being completely burned in the converter. I was asked to use higher octane fuel and that did not solve the problem. The manufacturer is telling the dealer that they are aware of the situation and they are investigating it. I did notice the smell on other Sequoias.
