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 am another victim of the ongoing problem for 2003 Toyota Sequoia, vcs traction control light on. So this past weekend being on a trip the light come on and we took it to the dealership and gaves us a surprise repair $1,448.50 for part 89541-0C062 and 896300C011 $751.54 so with labor some in the 2,500 dls. So I told the service guy what was the risk of driving this unit like that. In my own words is like having an 1980's Suburban. My husband did a research on the internet on tundrasulutions etc. And there are a lot of cases of this problem arousing around 40,000 miles or less. We have a 4 year old son and we are "scared" to drive this truck without of any of the safety features now I was told that the traction control computer and the main computer needed to replace and that this will disable ABS and traction controls. So this means that I have a 1980 Suburban. We are very upset because we call Toyota and they can't do anything about it, they refer me to the dealership service manager that probably can offer me a discount outside warranty. We need NHTSA to start investigating this issue there are thousands of users that already paid for this repair that don't even know how to file a complaint. Don't let this issue get out of hand, please don't waint until there are people hurt. My truck is worth around 14,000 the repair is 2500 the repair is 18% worth of the whole vehicle. Toyota knows about this problem if they sell a car with defective parts they should replace it.
