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

Sequoia 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,484 miles


I own a 2004 Toyota Sequoia. I took it in for new tires, with balancing and an alignment. They also did brake work on the front. It needed caliper pins and the rotors were turned. It had 47,481 miles on it. When my wife left the dealership there was a failure of the vsc (vehicle stability control) system. The system never once before malfunctioned until after the service at the Toyota dealership. It is clear that the dealer messed something up. They claim they did nothing to cause it. We talked the head manager of the dealership. The manager denied that it could be in any way their fault. Is it possible that the service caused the failure" I don't know what Toyota has their mechanics do but someone needs to do a full investigation. The vehicle now is a hazard to drive. I currently can't afford the $1500 dollars to replace the computer. Could it be related to the kind of tires put on or dust or metal in the sensors" failure codes are C0210 (right rear wheel speed sensor signal malfunction, C1223 (ABS control system malfunction), and C1310 (active booster solenoid). The Sequoia's vsc light comes on often and the vehicle will not accelerate even when the pedal is pressed all the way to the floor. It has almost caused about 2 bad accidents. We currently drive it but don't rely on it for passing. If the system fails we just have to drive slow and stay in our lane. I do know that Toyota knows that this is a huge problem. They also use a different skid control computer in newer models. We need a recall. I have seen many references to this same exact problem. For the safety of our drivers please issue a recall. The manufacturer obviously didn't test the system before it was allowed on the market.

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,800 miles
I own a 2004 Toyota Sequoia and the vsc light recently came on. The dealer is stating that the vsc computer needs to be replaced at my cost. They explained that it is common on the Sequoia, but a recall has not been issued. The cost is 1500 + the danger is losing control of the vehicle during brake malfunction. I have read of several others having the same problem. The dealer stats that I should be able to continue to drive, but 2 times I have lost ability to use brakes. Its not until I restart the car that the brakes work again. Dangerous, very dangerous. This problem appears all over the internet with this truck, its time for a recall.
