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.

Sienna 6-cyl

  • 15,000 miles


Told during my service at 15000K by Toyota technician that I would need to replace all 4 tires on my 2011 Toyota Sienna. I asked how was it possible a brand new leased vehicle with 15000K miles would need new tires and I was told that I could make it to 20000K but need new ones. The technician could not tell me why the tires were failing. After researching this issue and speaking with other Toyota Sienna owners it appears to be a big problem with the tires placed on Sienna minivans. It also appears that Toyota is blaming the tire company and the tire company is blaming Toyota. Of course the poor consumer gets stuck in the middle. A recall should be done as soon as possible as tire safety is very important.

We were infomed by Toyota service that the tires are balding and need replacement. They informed us that this is a tire issue. We contacted Firestone, and they informed us that there are issues with the Sienna prematurely wearing out tires due to alignment issues with the design of the Sienna. Firestone agreed to pay for half the cost of new tires. Toyota on the hand has given us the run around and is not taking ownership. We have found that through blogs there are customers that are replacing tires after less than a year of use (<15K miles). We have the entire thread of conversations and maintenance records that show that there is a problem with the design and manufacture of the vechicle's alignment as verified by Toyota service and other repair shops. This is the 5th new car we have owned, and tires last at least 40K miles. Toyota should own up to this and inform customers that they will need to replace tires every 15K miles!

Sienna 6-cyl

  • 18,463 miles


I took my car in for an oil change and asked them to check my tires due to my pressure light being on and the car was driving funny. Upon inspection it was discovered that there was a busted belt in the sidewall. This is the second tire I have had to replace in two months. Also, it was stated at this time that my car will not pass inspection due to wear on the tread and I will need to buy new tires before re-registering my vehicle. Car is less than one year old with under 20,000 miles.

Sienna 6-cyl

  • 9,400 miles
On March 3,2012 while returning from asheville, nc to our home in grayslake, il with a full day of nothing but interstate driving our tire warning indicator light came on. We pulled off at the next exit by calumet city, il. Assuming I just needed to add some air to the tire I was surprised to see the whole sidewall split open. We had not hit any sharp objects or potholes, but the run flat tire was ruined. As the 2011 Toyota Sienna AWD does not have a spare aaa could not help to replace the tire. They could tow us to the nearest Toyota dealership, but when we notified the dealership they informed us since it was late Saturday afternoon they would not be able to take a look at the tire until Monday. We then made the decision to have the van towed to the Toyota dealership nearest our home(libertyville, il) at our expense.Toyota gladly replaced the tire (with only 9400 miles of wear) for $283 and told me if any complaints to take the tire to a Bridgestone dealer. I informed the Toyota dealership that if the AWD Sienna had a spare and if I would have known before purchasing this vehicle it did not have a spare I would not be in this predicament. I took the tire to the Bridgestone dealer. He said it looked like the tire was damaged(it was not, it just split apart) and said he would send it to the corporate office to be evaluated. This was a month and a half ago with no response. I am afraid this will happen again.

I bought a 2011 Toyota siena xle with Bridgestone P35/55rf18 tires. They are the original tires and have been rotated according to schedule. After 25,000 miles, they are bald. I noticed slipping and tire failure, then inspected them. The front tires look like racing slicks with no remaining tread.
