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 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #1

My 2004 Toyota Sienna xle limited's alternator belt got cut and the vehicle immediately stopped on the road and had to be taken to a Toyota dealer. The dealer says my vehicle had a "catastrophic ac failure" which caused the belt to break and says it will cost $2400 in parts and $1600 in labor. He then contacted Toyota and said that Toyota will pay for the parts. This problem seems to happen a lot on this model, I searched on the internet and could find a lot of people with the same issues and Toyota has still not done any recall on the ac unit. Since this seems to a total design flaw, I would like Toyota to pick up the full tab for this repair. Any help in this regard will be appreciated.
