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.

Discovered rear bumper was severely burned around tail pipe after pulling a trailer. I purchased the vehicle new from modesto Toyota. I brought the vehicle to modesto Toyota and reported the problem as a factory defect. They inspected the problem and reported back to me that there was nothing wrong with the tail pipe and because it was beyond the warranty period there was nothing they would. I have looked at another 2010 Sequoia which pulls a travel trailer and discovered the same problem. I feel this problem has a potential to start a fire and should be covered by Toyota regardless of vehicle miles.

While driving our vehicle, the engine suddenly revved up on its own without the accelerator being depressed. No carpet was over the accelerator and the pedal and carpet had been replaced by Toyota already. We contacted Toyota and they did not respond.
