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.

2005 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

2005 Toyota Sienna xle - cruise control will not hold when going downhill. Dealer checked it, contacted Toyota tech. Support. They were told this model is not designed for cruise control to hold going downhill! I contacted Toyota via E-mail and was told the same thing. I have owned many cars and never have had cruise control not hold on a downhill road. It will be set at 60 and continue going as high as 80 when brakes applied. This is a danger, defect, something is not right with such a design. I am putting in a recent date, but it has occurred since the vehicle was purchased. Number of failures is on-going.
