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 #2

Jan 282008

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,025 miles


Twice I have had a tire stud break while replacing a tire, specifically the left front wheel on my 2004 Toyota Sienna with aluminum wheels. Both times the lug nut was being torqued to the correct setting of 76 ft-lbs.

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission

Left rear wheel stud broke when torqued to 85 Torque specs is 76 ftlb as mentioned in the owners manual; and if one stud can fracture at 85 ftlb, it is possible that the others have gone into yield zone, too. This is a very poor design and a safety risk. Design should be robust to handle DC nut runner, pneumatic drives, and manual drivers; which this stud was not capable to handle.
