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.

ABS, vsc, trac off, and tire pressure indicator came on while driving. I checked the tire pressure, gas cap everything was fine. Driving conditions were normal. The lights did not turn on when starting the next morning (not normal). The following day the lights came on during starting (normal) and then went off.

The contact owns a 2005 Toyota Sienna. The contact turned the ignition off, and the gear selector was shifted into the park position. Suddenly, the vehicle lunged forward without warning. When pressure was applied to the brake pedal there was no power response. When the emergency brake was engaged, the vehicle came to a stop. The contact inspected the vehicle and detected that the gear shift cable had disengaged, possibly when encountering a bump in the road. The manufacturer and an authorized dealer were notified of the failure. In addition, the speedometer would display an inaccurate reading at various speeds. The vehicle had not been repaired when the complaint was filed. The failure mileage was 114,000. The VIN was unavailable.
