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.

2005 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 302005

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


Engine noise is very loud. It would seem that the sound insulation around the engine is missing, but it is not. The radiator fan is especially loud on initial acceleration. My first 5000 mile service was just completed and after my complaint, the dealer performed a recall on the fan which was supposed to reduce the noise. It is no better. During hot summer days, it is worse because the fan runs faster (or louder) to maintain proper engine temperature. (note: I traded in my 2002 Sequoia with 80,000 miles and never heard the engine on that car).
