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

problem #1

  • 81,000 miles


After driving the vehicle approximately 10 miles, a jerking can be felt, and shortly the check engine, vsc, and trak lights come on. Continued driving sometimes results in jerking and/or loss of acceleration, including loss of vehicle movement control. The loss of acceleration typically occurs during a turn or in stop-and-go traffic. The situation has occurred to a lesser degree in highway traffic when passing other vehicles. Any of these situations is of concern, but especially the loss of acceleration because of the potential for other vehicles to crash in to us. This has occurred on various dates over the last approximately six (6) months. Have had communication with our local Toyota dealer service department, Toyota corporate customer service, and a non-Toyota auto repair shop; all to no avail. None of them have been able to tell me what the real problem and how to fix it for sure.
