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.

2004 Sienna, had to replace brake pads twice. Brought vehicle in for 30,000 mile check, and was told that they were again 75% worn out and need to be replaced for the third time. Also, had to replace all four tires at 18,000 miles.

Upon having the 15,000 mile maintenance done I was informed that my brake disc pads needed to replaced as they were down to 20%.

I am having the brakes on my new Toyota Sienna replaced and the rotors resurfaced at 24,000 miles this seems quite early to me. The consequence is the price to do this is $195 or I could get the new "type" of brake pad but that cost $235 (they also didn't have it in stock). I have read other complaints of persons getting their done as early as 10,000 miles. This is not right!

The brakes pads on my 2004 Sienna had to be replaced at 15,000 miles. Was told by the service advisor he has seen Siennas coming in at 10,000 miles for brake jobs. A Toyota technician told me the reason for this was because Toyota was using softer pads so the brakes can be quiterer. This is a very expensive job for something that should last into the 30,000 mi. Range. This is very dissapointing coming from Toyota.

Brake degradation on 2004 Toyota Sienna. Toyota Sienna brakes began to severly deteriorate at 14,000 miles. Pads worn beyond safe use and rotors glazed and warped.
