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.

2001 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 132014

Sienna CE 3.1L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 164,663 miles


Although there was no accident with our two encounters of this problem, we now cannot trust our much-loved Sienna. Fortunately, we live in a rural area, and when this occurred, there was little danger of loss of control. (My wife would disagree about this, but, as the driver, she handled herself well under the pressure of the unexpected.) I was driving at the time of the second occurrence, and quickly saw that what I expected to be a jammed floor mat was really a linkage or internal problem. The external linkage has now been lubricated, but appeared to be working perfectly before this lubrication. I suspect we are in for more excitement if we continue to drive the vehicle. As another Sienna owner pointed out, there was no recall issued for accelerator malfunction in our vehicles.
