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

  • 1,800 miles
Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) we recently purchased a new 2010 Toyota Tacoma. On its first long distance trip, with less that 2000 miles on the vehicle and barely a month old, the rear factory installed high performance bilstein rear shocks got so hot that the oil sprayed out of the top seal melting the boots and getting them so hot the plastic material dripped down and coated the connection to the rear axle. The shocks completely failed at that point. When I took it into Toyota of orange, in orange California where we purchased the vehicle, they informed me there was a bulletin out on the rear springs. They replaced both the springs and the shocks. I have written them several times to find out whether the shocks were faulty, or if it was a rear spring issue, or just a poor design with the vehicle, but have not heard back from them to date. This is a serious safety concern for the vehicle is unstable when the shocks failed. We are trying to get an answer as to why this vehicle, with both factory installed off-road and tow packages, failed with only a couple hundred pounds in the bed. It may be a real serious safety problem if this occurs when we have a load in the bed or a pulling a trailer. Also, you may want to contact Toyota and find out why this happened. If it is a systemic problem with this vehicle, there should be a recall out and not just a bulletin to prevent someone from getting seriously injured. Our contact at Toyota of orange is arlene hopkins [xxx]; the dealership is located at 1400 N. tustin ave, orange, ca 92865. She has not emailed a response to our concerns and it has been over almost two weeks. The VIN # on the truck is [xxx]. thanks
