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.

2009 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

2009 Toyota Sienna - raised the power rear hatch to load luggage. Was under the hatch when it started to automatically close on me. I had to use force for it not to close on me. Not sure what would have happened if it was a child putting something in the back. I don't think a young child could have stopped it from squeezing them. It would not stay open unless we manually held it. Had to manually hold it open the whole week of vacation. When returned, took it into the dealer the struts were bad and they replaced them under warranty. Works fine now.
