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.

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Three year ago I bought 4 sportiva wheels for my 1998 Toyota Sienna. The model of this wheel was milano. On May 25, 2006 my wife was driving home with my 5 year old kid and on road 116 km 0.2 lajas, puerto rico one of the wheels broke in the center and my wife lost control of the minivan for a few seconds. Hopefully she and my son don't have any injuries but she was very scared. If she were driving at much higher speed at that time my wife and kid could have been killed. She was driving at 25 mph because it was a turn. My car has damage to the front fender, brake disk, front axle, tire etc... the rest of the wheels are cracked in the same area. I'm writing this complaint because somebody that have this wheels can die and I will have to spend much money to fix my car.

Aluminum alloy rims apparently expand and contract with temperature changes, causing leaks in tires. Sometimes pressure drops 2-3 lbs. But sometimes it drops to dangerous levels (15 lbs. Or even less). Sometimes the tire pressure monitor alerts and some times it does not, even at dangerous low levels.
