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 sequioa, vsc lights/vsc tracking lights come on and make grinding noise once it is triggered it stays illuminated and the vehicle must be returned to dealership, and now this third time the check engine light appears, and is staying illuminated. This problem has happened for the 3rd time in four months. It is ridiculous. Checkered flag Toyota, va. Beach, va. Is the dealer with who has looked at the vehicle.

2003 Toyota Sequoia limited, 5 months old, 5200 miles, check engine light came on at the same time as vsc lights. Seems to be other reports of same incident. Also, brakes seem to be inadequate for vehicle weight with loing stopping distance, and significant travel when parking brake applied (low pedal)
