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.

Toyota Sequoia ball joint recall svc performed, subsequently vehicle tires severely scalloping outer edges leading to tread fracture and tire splitting. Dealer svc mgr mike latham, maita Toyota of sacramento, insists nothing is wrong with vehicle although he admits something is wrong with tires; insists that recall svc correctly performed and alignment within specs. Dealer refuses attempt to correct problem. Dealer offers to sell me new tires; effectively attempting to release hazardous and unsafe vehicle to me. Vehicle is under warranty both in mileage and time. Dealer still has vehicle.

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles
The contact owns a 2003 Toyota Sequoia. The contact stated that there was a recall on the lower ball joints. Recall repairs were done. But the contact felt that this recall problem caused the tires to wear out on the outside of the tread. The service dealer stated that this would not be caused from the recall, but the consumer felt that it was. If it was not related to the recall, then the consumer felt that it may be due to a defect within the tire or another defect within the suspension system. The contact stated the tires were rotated every 5,000 miles. The manufacturer referred the consumer to arbitration, but this could take up to 60 days.
