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.

Sienna 6-cyl

Last night as I was driving home on the freeway, my cars navigation system, in addition to the radio/dvd/cd system, shut down showing a black screen. As I kept driving, the side lights (but not the screen) would briefly come on and then turn off again. It did that at least 6 times. Everything else works fine, (e.g., lights, air conditioning, signals, etc.), but I have no music and no dvd player. My car is not that old and I keep it in mint condition! for it to have turned off like that is baffling, especially since I just had it totally serviced last month, as I do every year. The dealer, without having seen it, quoted an astronomical amount for something that could quite possibly be a fuse problem or a loose connection somewhere within the system. Anyway, that's my problem.

Master head unit, including navigation, rear camera, bluetooth, and stereo, stopped working. It makes a clicking noise but the screen is dead and does not respond at all. Appears to be from a design defect that causes overheating of the unit over time. Multiple reports of similar failures are all over the internet. This is a significant safety issue as the rear camera, bluetooth, and navigation are all important items for extra safety in operating the vehicle. I think most people would expect that a non-mechanical part (like the radio/head unit) would last longer than 6 years, especially when it cost several thousand dollars.
