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

Sienna 6-cyl

  • 258,000 miles


The spare tire mechanism broke on my 2001 Toyota Sienna minivan. Thankfully I was trying to remove the spare when it happened and the spare tire did not go flying into traffic. The cable broke at the end where the cable goes through the metal holder/bracket that actually clamps to the wheel. If this had broken off when the van was moving, either the van would have been damaged by the spare getting caught between the road and the van or the spare may have hit another car. This is maybe the second time that we have had the spare off in the 258K miles we have owned the car so it is not something that we inspect regularly. There are a lot of these vans out there and I really don't want to be behind one when the spare lets go. The dealership claimed that my van did not have a recall on this item.
