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.

problem #1

Jan 112005

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 0 miles
Extremely high idle speed from a cold start (1500-1700 RPM) leads to wheel spin and loss of control on icy/snowy surfaces. I turned sideways in my driveway this morning while backing out of my garage. Rear wheels are spinning while the brakes are holding the front wheels. I have a business partner who also has a 2005 Sequoia that behaves identically. He slid off his driveway into a landscape bed, suffering minor body damage. The cold start idle speed is excessive and dangerous.
