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 #2

Sequoia 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


Vehicle emits a rotten egg smell through the ventilation system whenever we step on the accelerator. Sometimes the smell is so bad that it burns our eyes and nose! Toyota acknowledged the problem, stating they could not do anything until a recall for the catalytic converter is issued. They further said that earlier year models (2003-2005) vehicles had the same problem!
