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.

I loved my 2001 Sienna but driving to FL it started making a loud thumping noise. Not exactly sure when the noise started because I had the radio up loud, but when I got close to the destination (5 hr drive) i turned down the radio and heard the thumping. My husband met me and checked the oil -- it was empty. I regularly had the oil changed and it had never been low. We put in oil, drove it to an oil chang place and had them clean it out and put in new oil. Drove it a few days and the oil was low again. Traded the car in Dec for a 2004 Sienna.
