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.

problem #2

Sienna CE 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Embarrassing and not sure if it is a safety issue. Don't really know where to turn since I've had 2 mechanics look at it and had rear brakes replaced.

problem #1

Aug 312011

Sienna XLE Limited AWD 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles

Dealer replaced rear brakes at very high cost. After that, brakes squeal when applying while in reverse. Technician claims he could not reproduce. Service writer says that all of his vehicles' brakes squeal when applying in reverse. (Same liar I have dealt with before!) I have never had this problem in over 50 years of driving! Will live with problem until I can reproduce it at dealership or independent repair shop. May happen only when brakes are cold. Will investigate.
