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.

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • 50,000 miles


For the past 4 years, our Sequoia has had problems with the brake warning light coming on as well as the traction control warning light. The only way to turn off the light is to turn off the car. Once every 3 months or so, it sounds as if the traction control/ABS is turning on and a loud grinding is heard and it feels like there is a temporary loss in braking power. Toyota has charged me thousands of dollars to replace bearings, brake cylinders, etc. None of these repairs have worked. They told me the last time that the next fix is a replacement of the ESC computer. Searching online and through NHTSA complaints, this is a common problem and clearly a design flaw in the computer and it should be a part of a recall.
