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 #2

Sequoia SR5 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


The rear hatch window has not rolled down since 2005. It is now 2009. I used this window twice before it stopped working. I always forgot about it when at the Toyota dealership until today. I was quoted $100 just to check out the problem. I said "Forget It!" My extended warranty ended in July 2008 at 60,000 miles. I am now at 68,800 miles. This should be a lifetime warranty item. A rear hatch window cannot possibly be over-used like a driver's window. What the heck???

Rear window intermittently quit working over time. How could the motor wear out when it had only been used a few times a year over 4 years' time? Pretty shabby for such an expensive car!
