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

Jan 272006

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,050 miles


Thiswas my second report on this incident. I took the vehicle to be serviced for the last incident where the front brakes failed, the dealership technician said the loss was due to an after-market security/remote system that I had installed by a tidy car. They suggested I have this disconnected. After having the system disconnected I took the vehicle to the local automatic car wash. When leaving the car wash I experiences loss of brakes as I pulled into traffic. Third time I've lost brakes when rotors got wet.
