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 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The rear suspension bottoms out when there is a large load in the bed of the truck (2008 Toyota Tacoma access cab 4X4, no trd package). Just standing on the rear bumper makes the rear end drop considerably.
