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.

  • Automatic transmission

I own a 2006 Toyota Tacoma which I purchased new, and now have 11,347 miles on it. It's an automatic 4 speed ect-I transmission. From date of purchase to present at speeds between 50 and 60 mph there is a loud gera whine. Below 50 and above 60 it goes away. I think it may be caused by the ring & pinion gears in the differential, although I am not certain.
