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

May 102007

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles


My husband noticed the 2004 Toyota Sienna moving in the driveway and found that the automatic transmission shifted out of park. He then played around with it and found that it can be shifted out of park without depressing the brake. I took it to the local Toyota dealership and was told that something broke off inside and would cost around $700 to fix it. They then said that my children must have broken it off swinging from the shifter. I responded that I really didn't think that my children did such a thing and the customer service rep admitted that they're probably not strong enough to break it anyhow. Thiswas very dangerous.
