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.

What good is having an auto recalled if nothing is done to correct the problem" I am referring to the spare tire storage cables that have been in a recalled state since 2010 and has still not been corrected. I feel that both the Toyota motor car company and the U.S. government have let me down once again. Is anything being done to correct this problem"

Campaign 14V273000 (spare tire cable corrosion) was initiated in May 2014. It's now a year later and there is no permanent fix, nor has Toyota even provided a date when there will be a permanent fix. The interim fix I have been living with for the past year was to remove the spare tire from under my minivan and put it in the passenger compartment. Toyota has gone way too long without providing a fix. But what troubles me today is that when I look up my VIN ([xxx]) in Toyota's database and in yours (safercar.gov), the response is no open recalls. How can this be? "no open recalls, " yet the problem still exists. I wonder if anyone is working on it. Btw, I'd be happy to have a new cable same as the original installed, but apparently the dealer isn't allowed to use the same part as original because it could corrode again, which in my opinion is unlikely because at this point in my minivan's life, any cable will outlast the rest of the vehicle.

The following is an email we sent to Toyota. We believe Toyota has failed to remedy the defect within a reasonable time. Request your help to resolve the issue. Thank you, email: "12/12/14 we had the temporary remedy for the 2004 Sienna spare tire recall (#E1S) done at your dealership October 2, 2014. We were told that we couldn't leave the dealership with the spare tire in its current location under the car. Subsequently, the spare tire cable was cut and the spare tire put in the trunk. We were told this was a temporary remedy and that Toyota would have a solution by December 2014. We want to know when the permanent solution will be available. Please keep us updated as to the status of this recall so the inconvenience of the spare tire taking up space in the trunk and the inability to stow the back seat can be resolved. We appreciate Toyota S concern for safety and that this is being addressed."

The paint on the oem 17" aluminum rims for my Toyota Sienna started bubbling and peeling. If left unchecked, I will have to have the wheels either replaced or stripped and repainted to keep the metal from corroding and the rims from failing. The bubbling happens on the inside of the rims as well, making a good seal with the tire difficult and causing slow air leaks. Thus far Toyota refuses to recognize the problem.

While driving a 2004 Toyota Sienna van at 65 miles per hour on the highway, started to hear a rumbling sound for a few seconds, then heard a loud pop, suddenly lost control of van and veered to the right, off of the highway into a ditch. Once in the ditch, the van turned sideways and continued going sideways for at least 50 feet. When I inspected the van, the rear, driver side tire had lost its tread. The tire was basically bald but still inflated. This tire was the failed component. In going into the ditch, the van lost its rear bumper, a front grille and sustained several dents / scratches to the van body.
