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

Oct 242004

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


While driving on an interstate at 60 - 65 mph, a loud sound was heard from the rear of the vehicle and the handling became very difficult. The vehicle was pulled to the shoulder. The vehicle was towed to the Toyota dealership in las cruces, nm. Investigation from the dealer was the U-bolt that connected the leaf springs to the axle came off and damaged the rear differential, the rear wheel & tire and possibly the front tire. The dealer contacted the Toyota care representative and they responded that this was a case of the failure of a fastener and was not considered to be a mechanical defect of the vehicle. As of this report the vehicle was not repaired.
