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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012011

Sequoia 4WD 8-cyl

  • 42,136 miles


ABS and traction control failure due to failed right rear ABS wheel sensor and wiring harness. ABS and traction control would initiate at random to include when pulling out into traffic without any wheel slip. The initiation of traction control while accelerating and merging with traffic caused some close calls with the loss of power and deceleration of my car. After random initiated the ABS warning light would come on and the car would have no ABS, traction control, or 4 wheel drive. Toyota service writer stated that this is becoming a common repair due to issues with corrosion. Service writer knew that both an ABS sensor and wiring harness needed to be replaced as a pair as this repair is now "so common". if Toyota knows that this standard safety equipment is failing due to corrosion and obvious design issues they should be replacing at no cost to the owner.
