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.

The contact owns a 2001 Toyota Tundra. The contact stated that while driving at about 55 mph, the spare tire fell off the vehicle due to corrosion on the frame. The contact called the manufacturer and referenced recall 09V444000 (structure: Frame and members: Underbody shields) for which he never received a recall notice. The manufacturer gave him a case number and advised him that someone would get back in touch with him in reference to the failure. The current and failure mileages were approximately 100,000.

I own a 2001 Tundra. I just learned of 4 recalls: Nhsta #09E025000, 09V444000, 06E026000, and 06E065000. We received no notification from the companies required to do so. The truck is registered. We purchased the truck new and have been the only owners. We have not changed address since the purchase. I believe the failure to be notified was deliberate to avoid the cost of compliance with the recall. I have been unable to get any of the 4 companies involved to respond to phone messages.

I have a 2001 Toyota Tundra. I brought this vehicle in for Rhode Island state inspection and it failed due to frame rust. The spare tire separated and the frame that holds the tire broke and is being held together with a strap. There are places in the frame that have rusted through completely. Both the dealership and the corporate offices have not been of any assistance. Updated 03/25/10 the consumer sent in pictures. Updated 07/14/10.8jb
