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.

2003 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 182003

Tacoma 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 2,300 miles


I own a 2003 Toyota Tacoma regular cab (2 door) pickup truck that I purchased in December 2002. Water leaks into the inside of the truck onto the sealplate from the passenger side door. This occurs when washing the truck or during rain storms, etc. I first noticed this problem in March 2003. I have taken the truck into the local Toyota dealer to have it repaired a number of times, and it still leaks. I would like to get this problem resolved.
