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

Aug 112011

Sienna 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles


We were backing out of a parking place at the hot springs village walmart. The van accelerated on its own, then the brakes failed. No amount of pressure would stop the van. We stopped by hitting a parked car, doing some damage to it. We had the van towed to a body shop to have the exterior repaired. We were afraid to drive it. After being repaired, we had it towed to lander's in little rock where it was pronounced safe to drive. A few weeks later we sold it and bought a 2011 Toyota Sienna van. (an accident report will follow on the 2011 Toyota van VIN#[xxx]) information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
