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

Jan 082003

Sienna 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


Problems: 1: the starting idle will not keep car on if temperature is below 60 and I had to pay $200, just to have Toyota clean it, but they would not replace it. Even after it been cleaned the problem still happens randomly. 2: tire pressure gauge sensor has always been on even after its been reset two different times. 3: randomly the front wheels will vibrate then stop after about 15 miles. I've replaced with new tires and had brakes done twice but problems still persists.
