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.

While I was parking my Toyota Sienna the engine revved and the van took off like a rocket! my foot was on the brake and only the brake the entire time. I finally stopped after running uncontrollably into a building!

Our vehicle has 119,698 miles of wear. We had our vehicle serviced at a reputable dealer. While stationary, both a wheel stud (during tire rotation), and the oil pump tensioner bolt hole (during service) broke. Dealer told us excessive force was not used. I believe inferior metal used in manufacturing.

I was traveling at 65mph on interstate 90 East. The car while driving when I was giving gas it didnt run forward and it just stopped on the middle of the road with my kids in it. I took it to the dealer and dealer told me that the radiator pipe got corroded so the cooling oil from the transmission didnt flow properly and the transmission failed during the car running.the Toyota has safety recall of excessive corrosion for the spare tire then same thing applies as the corrosion part is underneath of the engine.
