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.

2001 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Tacoma 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


The ignition key will not turn all the way off. It will go one notch to the left to alt. And turn the motor off but will not let the key come out. I've been to dealer several times and they don't know the problem. They 1st said it was the key but has proven wrong. I cannot lock the door with the key in the ignition except to use another key.
