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 #3

Oct 062014

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • 196,000 miles


Vehicle makes a sputtering noise at acceleration and coasting speed. Even at stop. Sounds like a misfire and thud at some points. Causes a loss in power and jerk.

problem #2

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • 196,000 miles
At stop and starting to accelerate vehicle hesitates while trying to go into intersection. Stalls for a few seconds vsc light comes on and once system gains control it lets me actually accelerate and proceed. Dangerous due to oncoming traffic and the hesitation time of not knowing how long until I regain control.

problem #1

Driving at 75mph and inexplicably lost vehicle speed. Engine was running but would not respond to foot feed, I.e. press down on accelerator and little to no increase in rpms from idle. Dealer replaced throttle position sensor.
