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.

2012 Toyota Sienna Owner Comments

problem #2

All underwood components are not only vulnerable, but attractive to rodents. While parked overnight on 4 consecutive nights, rodents have chewed through wires despite attractive rodent poison in the engine bay, the poison is untouched and the wires are attacked every night. To date injector wires, sensor sires, fuel pump wires have been compromised, including sensors for the stability control system, which is disabled. I repaired damage by running new wires, clearing nests and set traps and poison, but now the the fuel system has been attacked and the fuel pump does not activate. 3 other cars parked in the same location for the past 5 months are untouched. Safety systems are likely to be compromised for any person who must park these outdoors.

The contact owns a 2012 Toyota Sienna. The contact stated that there was a knocking and swooshing sound coming from the fuel tank. The noise would become louder when the contact was driving at lower speeds. The vehicle was taken to the dealer on several occasions. The dealer replaced the fuel tank but the repair did not correct the problem. The manufacturer was notified who stated that the noises were normal and offered no assistance. The failure mileage was 836 and the current mileage was 5,384. Updated 2/12/13
