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.

2006 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 082006


  • Automatic transmission
  • 400 miles


Brakes squealed within days of purchasing new Sienna 8-seat mini-van. It was returned to be fixed to dealer who "glazed" the brakes. Within days they were squealing agin. It was again returned to dealer who replaced rear drums and shoes. Within a few days the brakes were squealing again. It was taken to a second dealer who again replaced rear drums and shoe but within 24 hours, the brakes were again squealing. It has less than 4000 miles and has had less than a week when the brakes have not been squealing. Additionally, it takes excessive force to close back hatch.
