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.

Recall for the leaf springs. No notificaation. I have 3 leaf springs springs. If I put any weight in the bed of my truck the leaf springs tend to curve in a downward position. Affraid to put anything in bed of truck. Do to this problem I have since replaced shocks, replaced on front driver side ball joint, in the process of replacing front shocks and possible bearing assemblies and front shocks. I feel this is all cause by only having three leaf springs. When driving the back end tends to sway more than normal when driving. The weight of the back end tends to be a problem also with a composite bed, being too light.

It's been about 8 months since I was first notified of their recall E02 on the rear springs. I was called in for an inspection today (6/21/2016) and told the rear springs need to be replaced. I was told it would be another 6-8 weeks before the parts would be at the dealership and the truck would be fixed. Why does your Agency allow safety recalls to drag out for months" why are there no penalties on the manufacturers to give them an incentive to finish a safety recall in a timely fashion"

After nearly two years, the recall is incomplete and I'm beginning to have issues with the rear leaf springs in general. Two years is absurd! I need to replace the rear shocks as well but don't want to do anything that might possibly mess up the recall fix, if it's.ever completed.the defect from that caused the springs, I believe, is also causing the rear springs to fail overall.

Leaf springs have broken twice. First time in 2013 and current. Toyota says my VIN number is not included in the current recall. My truck should be included as it has the same safety concern as the ones being recalled.

Received recall notice from Toyota over 2 years ago regarding replacement of rear springs, however to this date nothing has been done regarding this recall. Very disturbing that no action has not been taken. However, I am not having any visable or mechanical problems that I can detect.

A recall for defective leaf springs for this vehicle was issued on September 29, 2014. The website shows being updated as of May 29, 2015 and lists the recall as incomplete. Toyota has not yet formulated a fix for this problem. I do not feel I should have to drive a vehicle that could potentially catch fire due to this defect while Toyota drags their feet coming up with a fix. Toyota should be pressed for a solution now.
