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.

2003 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #4

Mar 102003

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 231 miles


My 2003toyota Sienna has a distinct problem with pulling. The vehicle has been in to the dealership 6 times since March of 2003. The front end was realigned with 231 miles and the tires were replaced at that time. Since that initial realignment the vehicle has continued to pull and has been re-examined, realigned and testd 5 more times. The vehicle's 4 tires were replaced on October 1st and it was again realigned. The vehicle still pulls and on Oct. 4th the service manager again test drove the van and now states that a " shim pak" needs to be placed in the rear. This is unnacceptable for a vehicle with 18,000 miles on it. I fear that it is a temporary fix for a severe unrepairable problem.

Vehicle pulled to the left while driving. The steering wheel needed to be adjusted, both lock nut(s) were loose and the tie rod(s) were equally adjusted 1/8 of a turn to compensate for the steering wheel, a four wheel alignment was performed, the toe in and camber was adjusted, and all four tires were mounted and balanced.
