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.

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

In the month of June I took my truck into a reputable service center for our states required state safty inspection. During this inspection the tires must be removed for the brake inspection. While the inspecter was placing the tires back onto the truck, two of the wheel studs broke on the front hub. He brought them in to show me the problem and stated that this happens on almost every 2000 - 2003 Toyota pickup they work on. He even showed me that the stud wasn't cross threaded and removed the stud from the lug nut using a pair of pliers. The stud came right out with little pressure. The studs were replaced with new studs from a locale auto parts store. The old studs were thrown in the trash.
