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.

2006 Toyota Sequoia back door lock is broken. I know of 2 other owners with the same defect. If I was in an accident and need to escape through to open the back door hatch. I would be unable to do so because of the defect.

Concerning 2006 Toyota Sequoia - the rear tailgate latch lever broke. There is no interior tailgate release button. Dealership replaced it at our cost because they said it was no longer under warranty. Original and replacement lever is made of plastic with all the stress on a small piece of plastic. My own research has shown that many people have had this problem. It would appear that this could be a safety issue if rear occupants of the 3rd row seat had to exit through the tailgate in an emergency and the latch were to break again (or be broken from an impact/accident).

I own a 2006 Toyota Sequoia limited. When it rained I noticed water was getting in the vehicle at the rear hatch and under the right center row seat. I took my vehicle to a Toyota dealer but they were unable to find the problem. I took it to a different Toyota dealer and they said there was a leak coming from the bolts for the left hatch shock; they removed all rear interior and found "many hardware pieces missing". the dealer states the bolts were removed, cleaned, and applied silicone to them. Apparently the leak is gone. However, whenever it rains, I am concerned the problem could come back.
