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.

2003 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 192003

Sequoia 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,700 miles


First oil gauge. When I drive the SUV between 60 to 75 mph, the oil gauge point to zero. Dealer unable to fix it. Second. There are coolant pipe routed under vehicle without any protection. It is a great change broken by minor road hazard. My 2003 4WD SR5 Sequoia was broken at 12/19/2003. It took dealer 3 days to replace the 1 meter length pipe, because it is impossible for dealer to place the pipe at original position. This is bad design. No protection and not easy replace. I check other big SUV at market. They all use plastic shield to protect similar pipe under their SUV. I consider this is safety defect. Toyota should recall it.
