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.

I received a recall notice from Toyota regarding cable corrosion for the spare tire assembly. I brought the car to the Toyota dealer and they removed the cable and spare tire from under the car. I agreed to have this work completed based on an estimate from the dealer that the new parts to have the spare tire reinstalled would be made available within 4 wks. Now about 7 wks have passed and there is still no word from Toyota about when this spare tire solution will be made available. For 7 wks I have had to drive around with the spare tire the well of my Toyota while it bangs around and takes up a lot of space. My storage in the car has been compromised and I have to put delicate things and groceries at other places in the car. It is imperative that Toyota issue a permanent solution to this spare tire problem!

Purchased 2005 Toyota Sienna with Firestone compact spare in November 2005. In June 2006, used spare for about 8 miles and noted severe cracking on spare. Firestone replaced after two - three weeks delay due to out of stock. Replacement spare was mounted July 7, 2006. In June 2007, I was planning road trip, so I checked spare. Once again, noted cracking on spare. This tire was under a year old and has never been used on the road. One failure is bad luck, but two failures lead me to believe that tire and/or mount design on this vehicle causing premature failure. Obviously, I am concerned about safety and long term reliability.
