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.

Corrosion on oem 17' aluminum wheel rims caused air to slowly leak out between rim & tire. Leaking occurred over several days while vehicle was parked or being driven. Tires were re-mounted three times to correct problem. Tire shop had to clean & then polish rim mating surface to remove corrosion to get tires to seat & hold air.

Recently purchase this van and it has severe corrosion on the aluminum wheels and air seems to be slowly leaking from at least one of them. This could be a serious problem if it accelerates as one travels down the road.

All four wheels show excessive corrosion. Toyota says this is normal and not covered by any recall or warranty. Corrosion may be simply cosmetic, but our concern is that it will become structural over time causing either wheel failure or loss of tire pressure. See photos.

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.

There appears to be a recall for the spare time mounting for this vehicle. I have waited months and months for replacement parts. The dealer has no estimate for when the parts will be available. In the interim, I must either ride without a spare or the spare is loose in the back of the vehicle. Date of incident (on your form) is approximate.

Have an 2006 Toyota Sienna with 17" factory original alloy aluminum wheels and all 4 wheels have their protective coatings bubbling up from underneath and peeling off. Even though the van is nearly 9 years old now, it only has 72000 miles on it. But even so, it has had the bubbling up coating issue for 4 or 5 years already according to the last owner I bought it from. Looks to be a common problem with Toyota Siennas with the 17" alloy wheels in the area here in the upper midwest as most I've seen have the same problem. Concerned that the now exposed metal will corrode quickly and then at some point develop into a safety concern. This van is a heavy vehicle compared to regular cars on the road so I would think problems would arise quickly if there were a weakness to develop in the corroding metals. I'm currently experiencing air loss in only 1 tire/wheel. A local tire shop finds no leaks in the tire or valve stem and has tried dressing the beads with sealant. They think when the weight of the van is on the tire/wheel it's then leaking air out somewhere. Local Toyota dealer told me Toyota has no information on addressing my particular problem let alone recognize or state to customers that there is any kind of known repeating pattern of failure of the finish on the wheels on newer vehicles made in the last 10 yrs.

I was sent a recall notice by Toyota, indicating that the "spare tire assembly may corrode and detach". I took my vehicle to the dealer on December 19, 2014, and they removed the spare tire and placed it in the vehicle in a plastic bag. They did not fix it properly. The spare tire is now occupying a lot of space that I need for cargo. They told me I would receive a letter when the proper remedy was available. I called Toyota this morning (May 21, 2015) after waiting five months for the letter. The Toyota representative that I spoke with said that the parts would become available for the remedy "in the middle of this year" but she could not even give me the month in which this would happen. I think it is too much to have to carry my spare tire around in my cargo space for several months. Toyota should have been able to solve this problem faster. This is not the vehicle's drive train. This is a metal hanger for a spare tire, it shouldn't be that difficult.

I want to know why Toyota is dragging their feet getting the spare tire bracket and cable corrected. I will not have my wife and daughter without a means to replace a flat tire when they are traveling. The fix is simple new mechanism with stainless steel cable and associated hardware. The offer to remove the tire and place that in the trunk is an insult as is not to carry it and call Toyota if they have a flat. This recall has been in place for a very long time and something has to be done. Recall is 14V273000.

All four alloy wheels on this vehicle have the paint bubbling and chipping off leaving the wheel exterior exposed to weather and further corrosion. Underneath the chipped paint the alloy is corroding, potentially compromising the strength and overall integraty of the wheels. I have experienced air loss in both front tires over the course of just a few days. My local tire shop checked both front tires for punctures but found nothing. They then removed the tires from the rims and indicated the rims had corroded around the outer diameter of the rim where the tire bead is supposed to seal. They cleaned the corrosion from the rim interior and applied a bead sealing compound that fills in the corroded and pitted bead area of the rim allowing the tire bead to seal and hold air. When it comes time to rotate the tires the tech person indicated that I should also have them seal the tires placed on the front of the vehicle as they would probably start loosing air as well with the added weight of the front wheel drive engine and transmission. This seems to be a common issue with this year model of the Toyota Sienna. Thus far, Toyota will not do anything to correct this issue which seems to me to be a serious safety hazard.

Toyota Sienna recall for spare tire carrier moved the spare tire to the luggage compartment of vehicle. The tire was removed from the underside of the vehicle, placed in a bag, and placed in the luggage compartment. The tire was not secured by service and is free to vibrate, shake, and roll when turning. This was to be a temporary fix, with the permanent solution to be determined by Toyota. It has been over 6 months from the release date of the recall and there is still no permanent solution, and there is no eta for a fix at this time, per the Toyota customer service center. This issue needs to be resolved as it is limiting the available luggage compartment space, and the movement of the unsecured spare tire is distracting. What requirements are there for closing out action items on recalls and for completing "permanent" fixes?

The vehicle has been 'grumbling' for the past few months. Finally took it in and they are having to replace the front wheel bearings. I don't think the bearings should be wearing out in just 100K miles.

All four wheels have severe bubbling and peeling paint. Since purchasing the car, I have always gone to the Toyota dealer for work and they have not paid any attention to this complaint. When I decided to have some work done with my husband's mechanic he raised the issue. He is concerned with the rust that is occurring and will continue to occur over time will eventually effect our ability to place new tires on the car as the rust encroaches into the rims.

Wheels are corroding excessively, this may cause air leaks in the future. It is a 2006 with 74700 miles, this seems to me to be too soon for this kind of wear.
