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.

Truck is only a couple months old and multiple times now the transmission has failed to engage. Each time it's in drive, and on a slop or hill and when brake pedal is released with the truck in drive it starts clicking and grinding and rolls backwards, unable to engage and continue on. Truck requires that you put it into park and back into drive before you can proceed. Last time this occured I nearly hit a child in the street as it rolled backwards and would not engage even though it was still in drive. It's been into the shop, nothing they could do and I have emailed Toyota. Nobody wants to help and this issue continues. This is a serious safety issue when transmission will not engage and starts rolling backward before you even realize what is happening. Even if there is no hill-holding option with this transmission, the truck should not click and grind in gear once you put foot on the gas pedal to attempt to continue the drive forward.
