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

My 2001 Toyota Tacoma double cab frame is rusted through. Toyota is buying back older ones but the frame is the same or worse on my 2001 with no holes to let water and salt out. This is a potentially dangerous situation and since they bought the older ones back in this area it must be serious.

Payload rated at 1674/lbs according to the sales brochure and saleman. We advised the truck will be used for deliveries of 600-1200/lbs. Loaded 800/lbs and the truck suspension is at its full travel. The truck seems very unsafe to drive with more than a 500/lb payload.
