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.

2005 Toyota Tacoma Owner Comments

Wind noise - I experienced the same intolerable wind noise in the vehicle as others. It was most apparent at freeway speeds in a cross wind. The dealer said there was a known problem with the way the windshield was sealed and replaced it but to no avail. After several visits they called in a factory technician who quickly identified the problem as an improper fitting front passenger door and seal. Driving at freeway speed he applied light outward pressure to the upper portion of the door frame and the noise would occur. Examining the exterior fit of the door there was approximately a 3/16" mismatch to the rear door that also indicated an improper fit. This problem was incredibly annoying and took approximately 5 months to resolve. Since, I have had an occasional whistle but not the persistent sound as before.
