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.

Dunlop AT20 grandtrek P265/65R17 tire blow out. This new tire with only 18K miles on it completely fell apart while driving on I-4 traveling at 50 mph through the city of orlando. I wish I could upload a picture, but the end result is that the tire separated from the rim in a shredded circular pattern. Odd and very frightening. The tire was manufactured in 09. The other new tires on the car seem fine.

  • 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.
