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.

On two different occasions, while pulling into traffic from a stop, at less than 10 mph, the car lost power, the gas pedal was non-responsive, and the car seemed to brake for a few seconds resulting in my temporary loss of control of the vehicle. The vsc light on the dashboard flashed several times. After a few seconds, power to the vehicle returned.

We have four drivers in our family and have driven and owned 4X4 Wrangler, Explorer, Expedition, Subaru outback sport and 2 AWD Plymouth Voyager. We now also own and drive a 2006 Toyota Sequoia. The Sequoia is a danger to us and other drivers when there is snow or ice on the ground. We live in Michigan. With the 4 wheel drive on and with stability control, the back end still slides out easily without provocation. When it does the vsc takes over and leaves you out in traffic with no power. If you are going over 60mph you cannot turn on 4WD from 2wd. This requires slowing down in freeway traffic to activate 4WD. ABS does not come on if you are traveling at a slow speed like down a narrow icy driveway like we have. The Sequoia is a disaster waiting to happen. It obviously was not tested in real life winter conditions and needs to be fixed. Please help us.

2006 Toyota Sequoia limited 4 wheel drive. When I stop at intersections I receive a jolt in the drivetrain and a slight forward movement in the vehicle. The Toyota dealership has stated their is nothing wrong with the transmission and performed a driveshaft maintenance which has not alleviated the issue.

Our 2006 Sequoia experiences the same turning problem as announced in the 2003 Sequoia recall today. When making turns, the traction control light comes on and the vehicle hesitates a few seconds before accelerating. It is especially concerning because on left turns in front of other cars, you don't know that you will clear traffic. This has been happening over the last couple of months. I called Toyota and received case #[xxx]. I was told that they show no information on this model year having problems. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

2006 Toyota Sequoia has experienced intermittent electrical problems since purchase. On 30 July 09 vehicle experienced multiple computer failure of ECU, vsc, and other computers. Toyota tech reps say vehicle could not have caused problem, therefore it must be an "external' fault. However, there is absolutely no evidence of any external arcing or other power surge indicative of an "external" event. Toyota refuses to admit potential of a latent defect and says incident must be referred for insurance. Toyota will not address logical questions as to why other (non-protected systems such as the radio) in the vehicle still function in light of the alleged "external event." Additionally, there were no circuit breaker or fuses blown, so again how is it possible for the "external event" theory to be valid" given the anecdotal evidence on the web concerning Sequoia ecus and vsc computers, what action can NHTSA take to have the manufacturer address the problems"
