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.

1998 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Second failure of window electric motors. First occurred approximately one year ago--driver's side motor replaced. Second is current. Was told by dealer that motor would have to be replaced on passenger side. Was told no recall or service bulletins issued by Toyota even though dealers service people said window motor failures were common in Toyota.
