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

Sienna 6-cyl

On Dec. 3, 2007 at 10 am I left my morning exercise class and drove into the parking lot at the bank. I was pulling into a parking space, with my right foot lightly on the brake pedal, the mini van suddenly accelerated at a high speed. It went over a curb and was stopped by a tree. It happened very suddenly, with no warning. The mini van is currently at an auto repair center. The damage is estimated at over $4000. I am afraid to ever drive that van again. After the repairs are completed it will be taken to the Toyota dealer to be checked out by engineering.

Toyota Sienna advertises mpg ave of 18 and I have only recieved 14mpg with mine. This is false advertising and costs consumers $100's of extra dollars!!

There is a fault in the gas sensor which goes from the pedal to the engine. The car fails to accelerate when the pedal is depressed, then suddenly leaps forward, throwing the occupants back against the seats. It is dangerous to try to enter a highway, pass a slower vehicle, or retain speed when going uphill.
