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

May 102007

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Sienna. While driving downhill at various speeds, the contact has to apply the brakes. The transmission downshifts and fails to reshift into the correct gear. The dealer stated that the electronic control was the failure. The current mileage was 31,000 and failure mileage was 21,000. Updated 03/06/08. The consumer was not informed the vehicle had power assist brakes. The consumer stated when he slammed on the brakes, a more powerful braking would be applied. At that point, the consumer would hear a sound in the engine compartment and feel vibrations of the brake pedal.
