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

Sep 262013

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • 104,040 miles


Vehicle frame rusted to the point where it will be unsafe to drive soon. Vehicle is from a "heavy road salt use" state, but has had very limited exposure to salt during the winter months. Most times the frame has been rinsed with clean water after exposure to salt. Toyota's voluntary repair period has expired, yet they acknowledge a manufacturing defect. In addition there is a recall for a similar item related to the spare tire carrier on the same vehicle.

I was informed in December of 2012 of a recall on my 2004 Tacoma where the spare tire holder could rust and fall off. As of 4/24/2013 I still haven't been notified of what Toyota, S plan to fix this problem is. What can I do?
