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.

On 10/1/2011 while driving 40 mph on dry pavement, slight curve, pu beep in dash as it went into oncoming lane to left quick, I hit brakes "clunk" took both hands to pull to right and off the road. Felt like power steering went or lost a wheel. Would of hit someone head on if was meeting a car or truck. No cell service, so decided to slowly turn around, and try to get home==1 mi. Or less. Parked. Called dealership, they said they would have towed, but if they find nothing I have to pay. I drove up tues., they said nothing wrong. Probably leveling--because I put a 3" lift on it. I now am afraid to drive my new pu. 2,600 mi. They said they put on machine, but no print out as it showed nothing wrong"???"

The contact owns a 2011 Toyota Tacoma. The contact stated that there was a failure with the warped glazed rotors and drums at a very low mileage, causing difficulty in stopping the vehicle. The dealer made four attempts to correct the failure but to no avail. The manufacturer was contacted, but would not acknowledge a problem with the rotors and drums. The contact believed the failure to be a manufacturing defect and a safety hazard. The contact also stated that he experienced an identical failure with the traded 2010 Toyota Tacoma. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 9,300 and the current was unknown.

2011 Toyota Tacoma - brakes are very inconsistent. One time they work just as intended and the next time you depress the pedal, you feel pressure trying to push the pedal back to you and the braking is enhanced to the point that you feel like you are going to hit the steering wheel. Toyota says that is the nature of the brakes. If this is the case Toyota has a real problem.
