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.

2008 Toyota Sequoia-current problem with my SUV: My ABS, traction control, vehicle skid control lights are on turned on and it has been going on for a month-took it to a local Toyota dealership to diagnose the problem, it took them a whole day (8:30 am to 5:30 pm)to finally figured it out that we need to replace the vehicle skid control actuator and will cost us $2500-this is a safety issue that Toyota is well aware husband and I almost got into a car accident on an icy day in Colorado because of it-Toyota headquarters wont fix it nor the local dealership.....this is serious matter and it needs to be address.....this is the same problem to Toyota's recall for the 03

Excessive heat warped the rotors on the trd brake kit twice in 27000 mi. These brakes were offered as a manufacturer option. The dealer replaced the rotors and the calipers at 7000 mi. Now at 27000 mi the rotors are warped again. The dealer says it will take aprox 30 days to get the parts as they are back ordered. It appears that there is an excessive heat problem. Dealer states that there is 20% remaining on front brake pads. They also stated that this is a known issue.
