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.

Removed the run flat tires and replaced them with regular tires. I am constantly having the "tire balance" light go off in my car and getting flat tires. Ever since I switched the tires the alignment has always been issue.

Run-flat tire went flat without the warning light activation. When it activated, there was already a hole in the tire from running it flat. The second time this happened, which was one week later, there was a hole before the light came on. The tire pressure is checked regularly on this vehicle.

Spare tire underneath the van fell on road while driving while I was driving into a mall. Called Toyota customer service at 18003314331 about this issue. Although Toyota has acknowledged this problem and issued a warning, they refused to fix this issue. If this had happened on a highway, there could have been serious consequences.

I have had problems with my 2006 Toyota Sienna with most recently the power passenger sliding door that is broken and does not open or close. The dealer ft. Myers Toyota said the parts were on national back order and may take months to get the parts to fix. They did say they would cover under warranty. Secondly, my steering assembly needed replacement at 80,000 miles because of leaking fluid and I had to pay the labor to fix. Lastly, all 4 of the tire rims on the car have peeling, bubbling and chipping paint that is exposing the metal rim. It may cause further corrosion to the rims and cause a safety problem to the wheels. Germain Toyota in naples, fla where I bought the car would not help with the rims. Ft. myers Toyota where I get the car serviced told me about the national back order problem and also charged me for the defective steering assembly which I thought should have been covered under their lifetime power train warranty. They said it did not.

  • 14,000 miles
Severe corrosion on alloy wheels allows air to leak from tires. This results is almost constant low tire pressure, undue wear on tires, and safety issue. Issue began when the vehicle had only 14000 miles. Dealer refinished two wheels under warranty but refused to redo the other wheels or the same wheels when they quickly corroded again. Ongoing issue vehicle now has 66000 miles. In my opinion wheels need to be replaced with ones made from a different material --- aftermarket wheels do not seem to be available for this vehicle (AWD).

Sienna 6-cyl

  • 50,000 miles
No accident or fatalities, but I am concerned about the rapidly deteriorating condition of all four 17" alloy wheels (painted aluminum). Corrosion is progressing since the time I first noticed it starting (approximate incident date). Current mileage is 74,000. The paint is blistering starting at the inside edge of each wheel opening. It is quite severe and I am concerned that if this is not addressed, the corrosion might propagate a crack in one of the wheel spokes. I have another car with more than twice the mileage with similarly painted wheels with no corrosion after 36 years. This vehicle has seen three times the number of winters with salted roads. My 1986 Porsche 944 wasn't washed in the winter any more frequently than the Toyota. It appears this problem with Toyota is so prevalent that they prefer disgruntled customers over responsibly addressing this problem.

The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Sienna. The contact stated that the air bag warning lamp illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the air bag wiring harness was defective and needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 126,000 and the current mileage was 149,000. Updated 10/11/12 the consumer was informed the vehicle needed a main harness and driver seat air bag harness. He was given a price of $ $3,169 to fix the problem. The dealer informed the consumer the parts were on back order. Also, the alloy wheels alloy wheels were corroded. Toyota informed the consumer, he must have washed the wheels with the wrong soap or too much winter salt on the roads caused the problem.

Within 1 year of purchasing vehicle new the wheels started to show signs corrosion in the form of bubbling of the finish. We contacted our local dealer and they said it was due to road salt and me not cleaning them properly and I would have to pay to replace them. We took the vehicle back to the dealer shortly before the warranty ran out and again were told that it was our fault and we would have to pay to do something about it. We took it to the dealer one last time after the warranty and were told since the warranty was up they could do nothing for us. All 4 wheels are now corroded severely. Large chunks of paint routinely fall off during washing. I'm worried about safety at this point and plan to replace the rims at my own expense. I've owned multiple cars with similarly coated alloy rims and have never had this issue before. It wasn't due to me cleaning them properly, it's a manufacturing defect.

All 4 wheels on my Sienna have their plating peeling off and possibly subjecting the wheels to rust and deterioration. I keep my wheels clean and, while cleaning them recently, I noticed what I feel may be rusting where the plating is peeling. I mentioned this when I had my car inspected and also registered a complaint with Toyota corporation.

I bought a 2006 Toyota Sienna in December.,2006, the following September while coming back from vacation I had a blowout on my factory installed Bridgestone tire. I do not necessarily believe the problem is the tires, rather, the alloy wheels, as the tire pressure light goes on frequently, the wheels have been peeling since I bought the vehicle new, when I inquired about a problem with the alloy wheels Toyota blew me off.I know many are having the same issue with their alloy wheels. I think the alloy wheels are defective causing problems in tire pressure and ultimately causing blowouts. The bubbling and peeling just makes it apparent cosmetically that there is a bigger problem. Please investigate.

I have a 2006 Toyota Sienna xle fwd. The alloy is flaking off my 17 " wheel rims. This is causing corrosion of the wheel which will eventually lead to failure. There are numerous complaints on this and Toyota is not taking corrective action.
