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.

Steering wheel shakes at highway speed, Toyota escondido has been able to duplicate's problem. Wheels have been rotated and balanced and problem still persist, vehicle is now at 9100 miles and I plan having dealer look at issue again, but I'm concerned this could lead to a more serious issue that could affect the safety of the vehicle.I have researched forums and found numerous complaints regarding this issue that seems to plague the Tacoma line.

The contact owns a 2012 Toyota Tacoma. The contact stated that while driving approximately 30 mph, there was a loud noise heard from under the vehicle. The contact looked in his rear view mirror and saw that the spare tire was rolling down the street. The contact immediately pulled over and retrieved the tire. The vehicle was taken to a dealer for diagnosis where they advised him that they were unsure as to why the tire separated from the vehicle. The vehicle was repaired by re-installing the spare tire under the vehicle. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure and current mileages were approximately 9,700.
