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.

2004 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

problem #4

Aug 112010

Sequoia SR5 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 114,000 miles


I replaced the gas cap and the problem went away for about a year. It came back and instead of buying an Autozone gas cap I bought a genuine Toyota gas cap. It was not too expensive. Only $22. I have found some after market parts superior to OEM Toyota but this is one that is superior to after market. Light went off and has stayed off.
