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.

The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Sienna. While driving 30 mph, the spare tire detached from the vehicle due to a rusted cable. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the tire was taken from its original position and placed in the trunk of the vehicle. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 113,000. Updated 7/16/15

I have a 2006 Toyota Sienna le with less than 40,000 miles. The rear hatch strut has failed and the hatch will not stay open on it's own and comes crashing down with intense force if not held open. When it first happened it came crashing down on my back and hurt it. I am quick to move out of the way now when it closes because it can cause serious harm to anyone in its way. This is of serious concern to me with a 5 year old and a 3 year old. I contacted Toyota about it and they want to charge me $400 to fix their problem. I have seen there has been a recall for the 2006 Sienna with a power door but not for the other models. My guess is that they might use the same strut or the strut is having the same issue. Please investigate this as I have seen numerous people with the same problem.

In November 2006 I purchased a lowered floor Toyota Sienna with automatic wheelchair ramp. The purchase was made through mc mobility in mentor Ohio, modifications done by braun Corp in Indiana. First the gas tank had not been changed which caused malfunctions in the emissions system and associated electronic systems. This took several months to diagnose and fix. Then an ac tube running from front to back had not been strapped in properly, causing it to wear through. This took about two months to resolve. The most persistent problem is with the ramp. Since the spring of 2007 it has intermittently malfunctioned. The ramp will deploy as designed, but then sometimes the ramp will not stow back in the vehicle. Obviously the van cannot be operated with the ramp extended. Assistance is needed to manually work against the automatic system to stow the ramp, and assistance is not always around. The malfunction may happen just once and be fine for weeks on either side, or it might happen continually for weeks with obvious impediment to employment and other life activities as well as serious potential for injury as a lone disabled driver has to try to cope with the problem. Under vehicle warranty mc has done numerous repair attempts but nothing so far has worked permanently. This is a continuing problem.
