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.

2008 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #1

To change a tire the floor jack was placed in front of the left rear tire a little too far toward the center (from left to right) of the vehicle. The placement appeared to be against steel but in reality the material was black plastic. When the vehicle was lifted the plastic gave way and damaged the filler pipe to the fuel tank causing fuel to be dumped to the station drive during the refueling process. It would appear that the plastic is there to protect the fuel filler pipe. This would occur each time refueling takes place. The consequences could be grave! a considerable amount of fuel was spilled because the slope of the drive was away from the operators view. Replacement of parts will correct the problem. I have requested the old parts be returned to me.
