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

  • miles


Steering wheel column (or part of the steering wheel is making a clicking sound when turning wheels in low speeds or in reverse. The clicking sound is getting louder and the wheels appear to "skip" or "jerk slightly" when turned. I thought that it was a typical or individual issue, but a lot of Toyota Sienna owners are experiencing the same issue.

I own a 2012 Sienna with approximately 34,000 miles. The wheels are aluminum, and the tires have all received routine rotations at the dealership, and tire repairs at the local tire dealer, all of which involved the use of air driven impact wrenches. Impact wrenches have damaged the two piece chrome plated protective covering on most of the lug nuts on my wheels to the point that they literally cannot be removed or reinstalled using the factory supplied lug wrench. The wrench no longer fits the damaged lug nuts. Twice recently I have had flats, requiring the use of the factory supplied lug wrench to remove the flat and install the spare. This task was impossible both times because of existing disfigurement to one or more of the lug nuts on the wheels involved. I had to get help from tire shops both times to change my tires. Fortunately both times help was available, but without such help, a simple flat tire can strand motorists, subjecting them to extreme safety hazards with terrible potential safety consequences. Once removed, lug nuts cannot be reliably retightened.
