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 #2

I was attempting to park my 2006 Toyota Sienna when suddenly the engine started to rev loudly & the car continued to move forward, even as I frantically applied the brakes. The car would not stop but my fast-thinking husband quickly put the car into neutral & then shut the car off. We drove to our Toyota dealer in vineland, NJ, where they performed diagnostic tests but couldn't find anything wrong. Their determination was that it must have been the floor mat pressing on the accelerator. I am sure that the mat was not the problem and that Toyota is attempting to cover up a problem with a car that is not already on their recall list.

Faulty brake mechanism. Toyota Sienna limited 2wd with disc brakes front and back. When stopped brakes must be continually depressed further as time goes on to keep vehicle from moving forward. Also loses braking power on downhill.
