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.

2004 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

problem #1

Tacoma 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The contact owns a 2004 Toyota Tacoma. Had truck lifted on 6-7-04 for $3700, and on 6-24-04 got the truck retorqued which tightened and aligned it. Around February 2005 heard a clanking noise from the brake system, and the steering wheel shook. While pressing on the brakes and the truck shook and it turned to the right, suspension was loose. On 3-7-05 took it to a Toyota dealer to inspect vehicle and fix it. Consumer refused to deal with the other companies because they were rude and intimidating. Vehicle was not under a warranty because another company tightened the bolts and charged consumer $80. The Toyota dealer replaced rear:axle:spindle.
