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

Apr 152004

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles


I have a 2001 Toyota Sienna.. having problems with evap control system. I cannot fill up the gas tank continously.. stops every few seconds... sometimes spilling gasoline..(started at about 46,000 miles).. I paid $98 dollars to a local toyotal service center to have it check. They said, my van has a problem with the "charcoal cannister" and would cost me $500 dollars to replace... I called Toyota customer service to find out if they will cover the cost of the replacement since they have a settlement issue with epa regarding these kind of problems. I understand they have a $20 million dollar settlement w/ epa for these kinds of violations.. but they cover vehicles manufactured up to 1998 only. They have extended the warranties for these vehicles to 14 years or 150,000 miles... if they are covering vehicles much older than mine, I think that the warranty for my vehicle should also be extended because it has a problem relating to the emissions. Also, $500 dollars is too much for a charcoal cannister replacement.. I would appreciate it very much if you can get this issue resolve with Toyota. They can always get the $500 from the $20 million settlement they had agreed w/ epa. Thank you very much, esteban
