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.

2007 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

Sequoia 8-cyl

When at a complete stop (brakes applied), once releasing brake and slowly starting to move (less than 1 mph), everyone in the vehicle feels a nudge (like getting rear ended or a bad drive-line U-joint). Also, feel a similar nudge when the automatic transmission shifts from 3rd to 4th gear (possibly 4th to 5th gear with the over-drive on) at about 50 mph. These conditions constantly occur every time the vehicle is driven (everyday!). reported both conditions to the dealer numerous times since Nov 2012 (while under the extended warranty), and the dealer continues to say this is normal and continues to diagnose as suspension spring wrap/tension. The dealer action was to lube the drive-line U-joints (with no improvement). I do not buy it, and believe there is a much bigger issue/defect potentially with the automatic transmission and over-drive. Now my extended warranty has expired and the nudge continues and has intensified. This is a safety concern not to mention I will not be able to sell the vehicle with this condition (s.O.L). My recommendation, do not buy a Toyota truck or sport utility vehicle until Toyota addresses the issue/defect.
