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.

Initially the dr side low beam headlight would not light. Dealer replaced bulb and ECU module. Warranty replacement. Cause was reported the ECU failed. Months later the dr side low beam headlight failed again but after the one year repair work warranty. This time it was reported to be the bulb and was replaced, dlr. Would not warrant the work, even the extended warranty supposedly did not cover. Cost to cust. Was $395. Currently the passenger side low beam headlight has quit working, several months ago and cust. Bought direct replacement bulb and installed it. That did not remedy the problem. It appears that the ECU for the passenger side low beam headlight may be faulty. It has been reported that costs for the ECU and dlr labor to replace would cost about $800. This seems to fall in the safety category and should be a recall and warranty work. Different dlr states that they can diagnose for $125 and determine the problem. Oh what to do! please help. All for seemingly a burned out headlamp. The service attitude and associated costs by the mfr. And dealers are piracy to say the least. I wouldn't mind paying my way but this seems to be a problem that is more widespread than just a few. Even in some other models. Unconscionable policy!

  • 76,000 miles
I own a 2004 Toyota Sienna with 76,000 miles on it. I was one of the first owners when the new model was introduced. It has been well maintained through molle Toyota, kc mo that I have been pleased with prior to this incident. I had some problems with it initially and Toyota motor sales always took care of it and provided excellent service and follow up. However, the reputation that they have built over the course of 4 years has come unraveled. One of my headlights went out recently and I took it in to the dealer to get fixed, assuming it needed a new bulb. I was presented with a projected price of $ $900 to fix one headlight. $ $800 of this was a "igniter" part from Toyota and $ $100 of this was labor from the dealer. I filed a complaint with Toyota motor and it was bounced back to the dealer who delivered the message that there was no other option but to pay this, due to the high mileage. Clearly, this is a safety issue as I can not afford to fix this and can not drive the car without headlights. A realistic repair expectation would be to replace a bulb. This is an outrageous expense that Toyota should incur. Thank you, patrice lofquist
