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

problem #1

Jun 122005

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles


Total brake failure. While driving in parking lot at low speed hit brakes and brake pedal went to floor. Vehicle finally stopped after being steered on concrete abutment. Did not have any property damages or accident, but there was brake failure. Had towed vehicle to dealership where he purchased vehicle. Dealer tested it, and could not duplicate the total brake failure, but did note that the brake pressure was weak, and the pedal had to be put to the floor to stop. Because they were unable to duplicate total brake failure they could not repair.
