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.

When the sun reflected on the greasy dashboard, it would reflect onto the windshield and hinder the driver's visions. In addition, the entire dashboard area was cracked and the air bags were visible. The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 26,000.

Left automatic sliding door cable snapped after the right door cable snapped two months prior right after warranty expired. Toyota fixed the first problem but will not fix the other door and wants $2000 to fix it. The car is only 5 years old and Toyota knows this is an issue but will not help. This is not right. My child was seat belted in when the cable snapped and it whipped around and almost hit her in the head. This is very serious and Toyota needs to make it right.

The dashboard is melting in our Toyota Sienna. We have had the van handicapped adapted. My husband is a disabled vet and I am the driver. I am also the person that is having the sun reflect off the dash and can sometimes impair vision. The dash is so sticky that everything attaches to the dash and it is dirty. There is no way to clean it. I cannot afford to buy a new dash and we do not travel far during the early part of the day. He is 64 and I will be 64 years old. We would appreciate your help thank you very much.

Hi, I bought a Toyota Sienna 2wd in 2009. Toyota had a recall on the minivans due to the malfunctioning of the spare tire in cold climates, but did not include Iowa in it. They have not sent any communication in this regards to end customers. Updated IVOQ 08/05/10 updated IVOQ 08/31/10
