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.

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Sienna. The contact stated that the vehicle was included and partially remedied under NHTSA campaign number: 14V273000 (tires) however, the remaining part to do the recall repair was unavailable. The contact stated that the manufacturer exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. The manufacturer was notified of the issue. The contact had not experienced a failure...updated 06-08-15 the consumer stated there was excessive corrosion of the spare tire carrier cable. Spare tire and cable were removed from the vehicle. The spare tire was placed in the open cargo area near the rear of the vehicle causing both a safety issue and inconvenience in the use of the cargo area and rear seats. Updated 11/23/15

Sienna 6-cyl

  • miles
Received letter,7/24/14, advising that my 2008 Toyota Sienna had a potential problem with the cable, holding the spare tire underneath the vehicle, which needed to be replaced. On 8/26/14, my spare tire was relocated to the luggage compartment of my van which rendered the area unusable for folding the rear seats down to use that area for transporting larger items, etc! I checked several times with my local dealer regarding a permanent solution/repair and was told they had not yet received notice of and/or repair parts for the identified problem.on 11/20/14, I contacted the Toyota customer experience center and spoke, at length, with a representative who stated that they had been receiving numerous calls regarding this issue and that she was aware of several meetings regarding the issue but no resolution as yet and no idea when a resolution will occur. It would seem that by now, if the situation is being actively worked on, an acceptable repair would be available! I am frustrated and disappointed with Toyota for their seeming indifference to those of us waiting for their action on this matter. Thank you for your prompt attention to this situation.
