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.

Toyota Sienna developed problems with the runflat tire equipment. A few days after purchasing the vehicle, the consumer discovered the vehicle did not have a spare tire. The owners manual lead the consumer to believe that the run flat tires could be repaired or replaced at any tire dealer in the us. The consumer went to a tire shop to have the tires rotated, however he was told if the tire became flat it would cost $250 for a new tire and the tire(s) could not be repaired. The consumer went to the dealer and was told the same information, in addition if one of the tires had over 15,000 miles all 4 tires would have to be replaced. The consumer contacted Toyota and was told the vehicle was designed for run flat tires and there was no place for a spare tire. The consumer requested that the runflat tires be replaced with regular tires.

My 2005 Toyota Sienna has bridestone run flat tires. I noticed wear on my front tires at 15,741 miles and rotated my tires. I was noticing a noise from the front of my car and had the brakes checked, they were ok but my tires were not. Took vehicle to a Bridgestone tire dealer and he said that the tires were shot with 17,600 miles. They are contacting the manufacturer to see if they will replace or adjust the tires. Is it safe to drive this car with these tires in this kind of condition? mike berg.

Sienna 6-cyl

Had a new 2005 Toyota Sienna with 3,000 miles on the vehicle that had run flat tires, and the back right passenger tire that went flat. Then smoked and reached a flash point and caught fire. Was driving on highway at a speed of about 60 mph and noticed a jumpiness in the vehicle. Drove this way for an unknown distance. Pulled to side of the road, noticed a lot smoke coming from the tire and immediately removed family from vehicle. Called 911, and aaa. A passerby who worked for the forestry division called fire department as well. Two passerbys used 2 full fire extinguishers and put out fire, fire department came after and watered down tire as well. Towed to a dealer, dealer did not know why tire went into flames. Dealer did not offer no explanation. Contacted Toyota suggested that when the tire went flat along with hot temperatures, hot pavement, and gases within the tire could have cobusted and caused the fire. Toyota did replace the tire. The ti Bridgestone, brand B380 run flats, unsure of tire size at this time.

2005 Toyota Sienna concerns with the run flat tire equipment and no spare tires. When the tire goes flat or when the pressure was below 15 psi, the tires must be replaced.
