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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Air pump that cuts on for one minute when car is first started, pushes air into starting system to insure all gas is burned completely. Took in for service and told by dealer a little plastic fan blade breaks into pcs. And were stuck in valves making car go into "limp mode". when this happened car would not accelerate up a hill or go over 45 mph. Dealer quoted $3500 and said it happens all the time to these little plastic fan blades. I have read there are a lot of people who have had same problems especially in the Tacoma truck line. I think dealer should be required to fix these no matter how many miles on car or up to 10 years. They should not be made of plastic being so close to all the heat in area of air pump. Me and my family could have been in an accident being on interstate where the need to go over 45 mph is absolutely necessary or get rear ended. This problem is well documented by looking at the Tacoma web site, Toyota is dragging their feet, covering some people and I read covering cars in Canada but not in usa. A recall should be issued to cover cost. Most of the cost is labor for this 5 buck plastic fan blade.his is unacceptable to have to pay $3500 bucks for a bad design.
