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 #2

Jul 162004


  • Automatic transmission
  • 496 miles


A week after buying my Tacoma (04) we were driving on the freeway and w/only 496.4 miles on it, the truck started to shake continuosly, it started smoking and the steering wheel seized up on me. I managed to avoid a huge car accident, and pulled to the side of the road. When we got out we saw that my back drivers side tire was completely gone and had a sidewall blowout w/nothing left on the tire. I called Toyota and they would do nothing for me since it was the tire, I had to take it to a tire company. I did get the one tire replaced but it was a tire that didn't match my other 3. I had requested all of my tires to be inspected as well as my truck but no one would cooperate.
