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.

2002 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 012002

Sienna CE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles


From only a few months after purchasing the passenger sliding door would not open from the outside. Toyota said they lubricated and adjusted it and it was fine. It was fine for about 2 years, then it happened again. Again the adjusted and lubricated. Lasted about 2 years again. Then they said they had found out that the spring was not heavy enough. Took some arguing but they replaced the spring without charging me ($114.00). Three years later, same problem. Now they want $128.00 to remove the panel and check the cable. I told them it should be free because the lubed and adjusted me right out of my warranty period. they wouldn't do it. I'm going to try to email Toyota but I don't have much hope after reading other complaints.
