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.

Our 2010 Toyota Sienna recently had a cel go on. No codes were found by local repair shop so took the car to Toyota dealer. Dealer gave us error code U0123, U0124, U0126 and said we would have to replace the ABS actuator pump which will cost $3600+. I searched online and many have/had the same problem. Also read that Toyota has already covered a extension warranty for the Camry hybrid with the same problem part. One of the code was for the yaw rate sensor which was also part of a recall on some Toyota and Lexus cars.

Brakes were inspected at tire rotation in December 2012 by local trusted mechanic. Brakes checked good and had approximately 10,000 miles remaining. On January 20, 2013 family returned home from a 3 hour drive to the smell of burning coming from the right rear tire. Tire rim was noted to be as black as the rubber of the tire. Wispy smoke was seen rising from the right rear rotor/brake pads. Extremely hot to touch. On January 21,2013 brakes were examined by same mechanic and pads were destroyed. Rotor was also damaged. Causal factor could not be determined. Both rotor and pads replaced and brake fluid drained and refilled. On January 23, 2013 situation returned with right rear tire. The smell of "hot brakes" was coming from the tire and rim was very hot to touch. New rotor shows excessive scaring.

The contact owns a 2010 Toyota Sienna. While driving approximately 30 mph, the contact heard a loud roaring sound coming from the rear of the vehicle. The rear driver's side wheel then seized. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The technician stated that the rear braking system would have to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 57,000. The VIN was not available.

I was making a right hand turn in to a parking space in a parking lot. I had my foot on the brake as it was a sharp right turn in to the space and was slowly entering the space. When I was about 2 feet away from the parking block at the front of the space, the van suddenly accelerated and shot forward over the parking block and about 8 feet out in to a grassy yard in front of the lot. As it shot forward, I quickly checked to make sure that my foot was on the brake and not the gas pedal. It was on the brake and I was pushing the brake the entire time. The accelerator overrode the brake. I had no control over the acceleration. We took the van to Toyota where they kept it overnight. They told us they "were unable to replicate the problem". they verbally told us that there was nothing wrong with it and it was safe to drive. We asked them to put that in writing and they refused and said that they could not put that in writing.
