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 #1

Sienna 6 cyl

I would like to bring to your kind focus and immediate action the mounting woes of Toyota turning into a national shame to the Technological Giant Japan and a humiliatingly irrecoverable, irreversible and irreparable loss to Toyota Incorporation's hard-earned and invincible reputation spanning 6 decades of high qualitative and reliable products.

A little over year on, worries over safety and faulty accelerators are dwarfing the specter of more losses. Indeed, the crisis may have started in the U.S. but the problems are now worrying enough for talking heads in Tokyo to be questioning whether Toyota's woes will hurt Japan.

This has led to a widespread conviction and notion among common masses in America that Toyota is a life-threatening wagon and you are nowhere if you have one as the biggest menace of the car industry is the recall problem.

In the recent times, tens of hundreds of complaints have been lodged by people who had a narrow escape owing to a Hood latch failures and the Hood not at all aerodynamic to the weather conditions flying open ramming into the windshield while traveling on freeways at a tremendous velocity of maximum limit permitted.

Another problem is that the reckless response of the company representatives indifferent and cool by just saying it is not their fault turning a blind eye to the undeniable fact that all the faults discussed so far occur only to people traveling in Toyotas.

Recall is just a word in the manifesto of Toyota, just for a mere formality and there has never been even one done so far after the flurry of complaints though threatening to life.

I was traveling with my wife and kid on a freeway when all of a sudden, as usual in Toyota Sienna Van, the Hood Latch failed and the hood was flung unto our windshield breaking it into pieces and the pieces sprayed into and sprinkled into my wife's eyes at about 55 miles an hour. She was screaming and I couldn't see a thing in my front. The rearview mirror showed a truck following us, so my mind fortunately worked that I switched on the beacons and slowed down to the side of the road.

Only a couple of weeks ago I had it serviced at the Toyota Centre wherein the technical guys highlight and make us aware only about those serviceable, reparable and replaceable areas that could be billed heavily and less profitable areas are classified, made unaware of and lie untouched.

I humbly request you to take immediate and stern action.
