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

Aug 142009


  • 45,000 miles


Driving my 2006 Toyota Sienna on a busy freeway with three children ages 1, 7, & 10 when the air condition compressor decided to seize up causing the belt to burn and eventually snap. The burning belt resulted in a little smoke and a fearful smell filling the cabin. Fearing a fire, I was forced to pull off the road putting myself and my three children in harms way. After determining there was not a fire, we climbed back in the van and continued on our way. After a little research, I've learned the compressor problems are not uncommon in Toyota Sienna. In my case our vehicle had less than 45K miles. Seems there are many unsatisfied Sienna owners who have experienced a similar problem, and Toyota should consider recalling all vehicles with this air conditioning system. I feel this is a major safety concern since the mini-van is considered a family vehicle.
