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

problem #3

Sep 272010

Sequoia 8-cyl

  • 42,000 miles


I had just stopped at a red light when my SUV shuddered and then stalled out. It restarted but the A/C light blinked. The dealer said the A/C froze up (at 42000 miles) and needed to be replaced for over $1700- not under warranty. It will be fixed in the next month or so. If the light had not changed when it did I may have stalled in the middle of one of the busiest intersections in Virginia beach ( so unsafe there are red light cameras at that intersection). Prior to this the A/C had worked perfectly, so there was no warning that this would happen.

Began acceleration from 35 mph progressing to 55 mph, accelerator left my foot, engine sped up to over 5,000 RPM, applied both feet to brake pedal with all my weight, engine continued to race above 5,000 RPM, put car into drive 1 with no change, engine raced, put car into neutral and engine continued racing over 5,000 RPM, was able to steer car into a ditch, turned off ignition. The check engine light was blinking during this event. I was never able to stop with my brakes. I maintained both feet on the brake pedal during the event with my entire body weight on the pedal and the car never, ever stopped racing.
