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

Sienna 6-cyl

The rear brakes have been squeaking within the first year with less than 10,000 miles. The local dealer inspected and tried to correct the problem three times with no improvement. On 03/12/2003, the dealer worked on the squeaking brakes the third time and reported that dealer will called technical assistance line and will follow up on this issue, customer will be advised. However, the squeaking brakes only get worse and never hear from neither dealer nor Toyota. I called Toyota directly and they told me it was the federal government change in the way manufactures make brakes shoes. I can not believe that Toyota blame this continue excessively squeaking brakes problem to federal government. Please file your complaint if you have the same problem.
