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.

The problem with leaf spring started three years and after the final recall, we waited two months. The bad leaf spring caused a rough vibration, which caused rod, dry shaft, U joint, and rear end are connected which caused damage to all connected parts.the three years and two months of rough vibration caused a snowball effect while driving, turning and in motion.

My left rear bfgoodrich rugged terrain T/a size P265/70/R17 113T M+S 06-58633-01 wla195 (dot bft6 0011)(E4 0244068 02 42227-S E4)(777 T60 011) experienced rapid air loss due to a rupture/tread separation in 5 locations in the sidewall/tread area. The sidewall/tread ruptured/separated during use, resulting in rapid air loss similar to NHTSA campaign number: 15T016000. Tire was inflated to 32.5 psi. The on-board Toyota TPMS notification prevented an accident or additional damage. Photographs of separation damage are available.

At approximately 42000 miles I noticed a vibration in the front drivers side wheel. I had all four wheels replaced and the vibration continued so I took the vehicle to estabrook Toyota in pascagoula, ms (because that is where I was at the time). When I went to pick the vehicle up I was told the repair manager had personally checked the car out and determined it was the right front bearing so it was replaced and supposedly test driven. I left the store and immediately felt the vibration once again on the left front so I brought the car right back and they replaced the left front bearing as I had initially identified as the problem area and the problem went away. Now, two years later the left front wheel bearing has gone out once again and I am afraid to drive the vehicle.

Tacoma 6-cyl

  • 62,000 miles
The truck had approximately 62,000 miles when we drove it to Florida christmas day. On Saturday, December 30th, we ran some errands that covered about 15 miles of city driving. Upon returning to our hotel, as we backed in to a parking space, the truck accelerated wildly. The tires screamed as we backed up onto a parking berm (pictures included) and continued to squeal while my foot was standing on the brake pedal. I put the truck in drive, the truck came off of the berm, but the tires were still squealing all the while I'm still standing on the brake pedal. I put it in park right away and shut it off. Looking down at the pedals, there was nothing unusual to note. No mats had moved and the pedals were as they should be. If it were not for the berm, there is no telling of what the consequences would have been. I recall that as we backed in, my foot was either about to step on the brake pedal or I had already begun to brake. My foot was not on the accelerator because, with the air conditioner on, the engine has sufficient RPM's to slowly move the truck without it. I went out a few hours later to start the truck and move it back and forth. At that time, everything seemed fine. I also took photographs of the berm and tires at that time, which I can supply. This was a very unnerving experience and I've been mindful of it since. Even though it has been a couple of weeks since the incident, I'm unsure I can have faith this will not happen again. I have since gone to the dealer who preformed two open recalls, but said there is no evidence of any "incident" as stated above ever happening.

The contact owns 2007 Toyota Tacoma. The contact stated that there were bubbles on the surface of all four wheels. The contact stated that while the vehicle was at a stop, the rear passenger tire became flat. The psi warning light illuminated intermittently. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who stated that the failure was due to the chemicals use to attach the aluminum alloy on the wheels, that caused the product not to seal. As a consequence the wheels were dissolving, causing the tire to deflate. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and a case was filed with them. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 20,000 and the current mileage was 56,000.
