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.

Tacoma

  • 200 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. While the contact was driving approximately 35 mph, the tire air pressure sensor warning light indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the technician stated the air pressure was low in the tire and dispensed air into the tire. The contact was uncertain of the location of the tire on the vehicle. The failure occurred whenever the vehicle was in operation. The vehicle had been taken to an authorized dealer on six separate occasions for the identical failures which there were no resolutions. The failures continued to occur. Also, there was a replacement of the tire rims. In addition, the rear passenger tire exploded without warning causing the vehicle to travel uncontrollably. The contact was able to gain control with no injuries. The failure mileage was 200. The VIN was unavailable.

Tacoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,950 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. The contact stated that the label on his vehicle requires the air pressure in his tires to be at 29 psi. When tire pressure is at 29 psi, the pressure indicator light illuminates and remains lit. The vehicle drifts all over the road and the tires wear out quickly from under inflation. The tire manufacturer stated that the air pressure for the tires should be 51 psi. A mechanic at another shop stated that 45 psi is the best air pressure for that climate. The contact agreed and stated that the vehicle drives the best at 45 psi. The contact did not provide tire information because he stated that the tires were not the issue. The current mileage was 9,000 and failure mileage was 8,950.
