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.

2003 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

I have a 2003 Toyota Sequoia limited 4x4 we love it, other than for about 3 years the vsc, abs, and trac lights have been on. I have researched and read hundreds of complaints and totally agree with everyone. I have called Toyota in the past and have gotten the same response so I never took mine in for repair because the only issue I had a the time was the lights. I figured I could live with the annoying lights as long as there wasn't a actual problem? Now I still have the light problem but no rear brakes.

I am a diesel mechanic, so am not familiar with the small automobiles, but I have been trying to figure out what is the problem. No one seems to know or wants to give out free info, especially dealerships, they just want my money. I have called McDonna Toyota in Staunton VA and spoke with their service dept, just to request some info to help me diagnose the problem and they didn't have anyone knowledgeable enough to help. They said that they would have a mechanic call me back. I left them my number but am still waiting on that phone call. All they can say is bring in and they will check for a minimum cost of course. I didn't want to do that when I know I can fix myself if I talk to someone who works on them all the time and could give me a good idea of what direction to go.

So not only does Toyota just want our money so they can just throw on parts and guess, but that's the same way their dealers are as well. I tried a brake booster and of course it didn't help. Is there anyone else that has had the same issue as me with no rear brakes and could steer me in the right direction? because Toyota and their dealers don't seem to know unless I throw some cash their way and then its just a guess, which I can do? Any help would be appreciated?
