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.

2011 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 302010


  • 600 miles


My brake lights remained on when I parked my 2011 Toyota Sienna. I continued to drive the vehicle about 2 miles, the brake lights remained on, and the more I drove it felt as if an anchor was holding my van back until finally the van would not go forward or reverse when I pressed on the accelerator. I had the van towed to the dealership and was told that the brake pedal was stuck because I bent the metal bar that the brake pedal was attached to. They are planning to replace the metal bar with another made of a stronger metal. The van was only 2 weeks old when this happened with about 600 miles on it. It has only happened once.
