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

Sienna 6-cyl

  • 37,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have a 2009 Toyota Sienna with about 37800 miles on the engine. This is a certified pre-owned Toyota and I bought it with approximately 33000 miles on it in November of 2010. At about 37000 I noticed a ticking noise coming from the engine at idle. It starts after the engine warms up; mostly after driving about 15 minutes. I took it to a Toyota dealer for a diagnosis and the dealer stated they heard it and it's only normal engine sound. There is a tsb 0094-09 that addresses the issue. However, my vehicle does not fall within the affected production change effective VIN according to the Toyota dealer. As a matter of fact my Sienna was manufactured about 2000 vehicles after the affected production change effective VIN. I believe the problems related to tsb 0094-09 still exist beyond the affected vins in the tsb. Toyota should really fix these problems. The engine loud ticking noise that is easily noticed is not normal.
