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.

I was driving 65 mph on the highway (95 degrees outside) with the sunroof closed and I heard what sounded like an explosion. There was no debris on the road and no one in front of me. The interior temperature of the vehicle was set at 68 degrees. I pulled over to inspect the vehicle, I realized that the glass in the sunroof over the driver's seat had completely shattered. I pulled the cover closed to protect myself from the possibility of any glass falling into the vehicle. When I contacted the dealership, I was informed that I clearly had something hit it; I explained the driving conditions and was still told something must have hit it. Upon returning home, I have discovered that there are other reports of windows spontaneously "exploding".

Sienna 6-cyl

  • 24,000 miles
For the past 6 months, our vehicle, a 2013 Toyota Sienna that we purchased new, has emitted a very foul odor from the air conditioning system. From all the information I have, this appears to be from mold growth. I am worried that aside from being extremely unpleasant, it is a safety concern. After numerous trips to two different Toyota dealers for service, an inspection by a southeast Toyota representative, and following all the guidelines found in the technical service bulletin, we have not had any improvement. The odor is sporadic but persistent, usually occurring several times a week. As I've explained to Toyota, there are three distinct "smells" (vinegar, wet dog, and one just very, very bad). We filed a formal complaint with Toyota last spring, wrote letters to many Toyota representatives, met with the general manager at the dealer where we purchased it, and have been in phone contact the past three weeks with a representative from the office of [xxx], CEO and president of Toyota North America. Toyota maintains this is an environmental issue and not a mechanical one, therefore they won't fix it. I have other vehicles in the same environment without this problem. Being that this van was purchased new, my first new vehicle ever, makes it even more upsetting. While one dealership said a recall is possible, unless this is deemed a safety concern, I do not see Toyota addressing this issue. Please help.
