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.

Have received at least two recall letters from Toyota advising that this vehicle has been included in takata air bag recall, however, because it is not in one of the high humidity areas, Toyota will not replace the air bag. The recall had affected Toyota Sequoia model year 2002 to 2007, my model year is 2005. Now that the NHTSA has forced the auto makers to be realistic; Toyota magically redefines the Toyota Sequoia model years as only 2002 and 2003 Toyota Sequoia. I believe this to be very underhanded. If I had moved to gulf coast area with my 2005 Sequoia, then my vehicle would be repaired with a new air bag module; because I live in a non-gulf coast area, the very same vehicle is not involved in a nationwide recall. Very disingenuous!! I was under the impression that NHTSA actions were to force the automakers to expand the recall of these takata airbags, not narrowly Focus the recall to two model years from six model years. I imagine that is considerable initial savings for Toyota. I believe NHTSA should investigate how several model years get removed from nationwide recall list, appears that other manufacturers are actually expanding their takata air bag recall to cover a wider range of vehicles and making it nationwide.

I received a recall notice for the airbag as part of the large recall notice. I took the truck in for a replacement part and the dealer did not have the part at the time. It has been 2 months and still no part or any idea when one will be available. I now have a vehicle that is limited in its use and can not sell, due to the liability of the new owner not following the recommendation to not use the passenger seat. Seems like if a recall is initiated there should be a timely resolution.

This has been going on since April 2010, its now November 2010 with no resolution. My 2005 Toyota Sequoia trac off, vsc trac, check engine lights and ABS lights keep coming on. Brought into the dealer three times while the lights were on so the dealer could put it on the computer. No codes show up. I am told that it's not covered even though we have the Toyota certified bumper to bumper warranty. They recalled the 2003 for the same problem. They need to do the same for the 05. Repair cost for this is $2200.
