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.

While driving at 35 mph, the check engine light, vsc off light, and vsc trac light all came on at once, and the vehicle stopped accelerating, and I experienced a dramatic decrease in vehicle power. I drove the vehicle home noticing a drastic change in acceleration as the Sequoia would not accelerate normally; it would accelerate at a significantly reduced rate, topping out at 35mph on the flats and 16 mph on an incline, in addition, during start up, the engine makes a high-pitch vacuum noise, which drops off and normal engine sound returns. I have had the car diagnosed; error codes P2440, P441 and P444 are all present indicating a failure of the air injection pump. This is a known problem on Toyota Sequoias and Tundra; however, Toyota has only acknowledged it on the 07-10 Sequoia by extending the warranty to 10 years and 150,000K miles for this part. It is clear from other posts on the NHTSA website and others that this problem also exists with the 2004-07 Sequoias as well. This is a safety issue that needs to be addressed before someone is injured, or worse yet killed.

Vehicle acceleration stalls for a few seconds when turning right into traffic. This issue is the same as NHTSA 10V176000, but is not covered under this safety recall. This issue is very hazardous to drivers.

While driving at low speeds the vehicle experienced a momentary loss of power and a grinding/vibrating of the brakes while in motion. The trac off and vsc trac warning lights came on along with the brake light. The warning lights and vibrating of the brakes could only be reset by turning the ignition off and restarting the vehicle. It happened twice in the last 12 hours.
