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.

problem #1

Mar 012008

Sienna 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Sienna. The vehicle does not come equipped with automatic sliding side doors. The doors must be manually opened. On most occasions when the sliding side doors are opened, they make a clicking sound. Oftentimes, the doors fail to remain open and slide shut. The contact is concerned that the doors may close while occupants are entering or exiting the vehicle, causing them to be injured. He called the dealer and was informed that the failure needed to occur in their presence because it was difficult to duplicate. The defect occurs on both rear passenger and driver side sliding doors. The failure mileage was 2,000 and current mileage was 7,200. Updated 11/6/08
