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.

2000 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #2

Sienna 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 145,000 miles


Poor design on the door latches on this automobile. We've had to replace multiple handles on both from and side (sliding doors) and will probably need to replace more if I keep the vehicle for a few more years. Yes, it is a 10 year old car, and I've no idea if those are the originals or if the previous owner had to do the same maintenance but I find it pretty unusual that the door latch/handle system should systematically fail on multiple doors and furthermore it's one of those parts that even after 10 or 15 or 20 years shouldn't really need replacing under normal use conditions. It's definitely a poor design.
