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.

The undercarriage is rusting badly to the point that I have found items that have rusted off the frame lying in my driveway after the car is parked. The inside of the rear hatch is rusted out beyond use. Car is well maintained and always in covered parking. Parts of the frame can be pulled off due ot the rust flaking and parts can be pulled off that should be bolted the car.

My vehicle is the subject of a recall for a defective takata airbag inflator. The vehicle was purchased in Arizona a few years ago, and I live in san diego, ca. I have a vacation home in baja California sur, Mexico. I keep the Toyota Sequoia at that home in Mexico, about 900 miles from California. There is a Toyota dealer in san jose del cabo who could make the repair. I do not want to drive the vehicle 1800 miles round trip to the usa in order to have the repair done in the usa. Toyota has refused to allow its dealer in san jose del cabo to make the repair. I would like to have you to require Toyota to repair my vehicle purchased in the United States by a U.S. citizen in Mexico.

I heard a knocking noise coming from my front right wheel area when I would go over a bump. Even when I was going very slow over a speed bump. I took it to my local repair garage and he told me it sounded like my strut was sticking. I made an appointment to have him replace my front struts. When I returned on 4/26/13 he told me that the bottom of the front right strut was broken off & that my front left strut had a crack in it & would have broken. He kept the part & showed me where it was broken & how it goes together. He said it was only the weight that was holding it on & he could not believe that it did not slide off. They check to see if this was part of a recall on the vehicle & did not find one. They recommended that I report it because it was dangerous & very rare that both struts would be effected. One broken & one cracked ready to brake. Please contact me if there is any recall on the Toyota Sequoia struts.

Sequoia 8-cyl

My Toyota Sequoia is a 2006 4X4 and has excessive frame rust at the weld seems and all over the rear axle housing and suspension components. I recently learned that Toyota has started to recall and replace these frames that are rusting from the inside out. I am worried about this rust at the frame weld and that snow and road salt and ice melter are causing my frame to rust from the inside out. My Sequoia was originally licensed in Kansas and they use heavy road salt. I live in Colorado and they have a heavy use of mag chloride, which is a major rust factor. The Toyota frame looks like it was never properly treated to prevent this type of rusting. I would like my frame to also be replaced and covered by Toyota under this recall.

I am having unusual tire wear on the outside edge of all 4 tires on my vehicle (2006 Toyota Sequoia), to the point of becoming bald. I have been relaying my concern to the dealer for the past 11K miles. The vehicle currently has 21K miles on it. The vehicle has been aligned 3 times by manufacturer dealers, the front ball joints have been replaced and the vehicle has been thoroughly inspected by district level manufacturer's people. They are saying nothing is wrong with the vehicle, but I have been doing some research and am finding that this has been a complaint on the same model of vehicle since 2002. I feel that the suspension of this vehicle is not allowing it to ride properly on the tires, thus causing this premature wear. The problem seems to be on bf goodrich, Bridgestone and in particular, dunlop tires.
