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 while braking between 50 mph to 40 mph. Dealer stated that rear drums needs to be replaced and it's a known design flaw. Even though it was a known flaw the company never notified me or others that I know that have 2001 Tundra.

This is our 3rd totoya Tundra in the family. We had a green 2000 V8 SR5 with the same problem. We recently just bought also a close out model 2000 SR5 limited 4WD and it has the same problem, and then again I just bought a brand new SR5 V8 and it is doing the same thing. When you step on the brake it like the whole steering wheel vibrates, especially if you are braking from a high speed to a slower speed(ex. 70mph. To 50mph.) its like the whole car shakes. Hopefully the NHTSA will look in to this matter so that this brake problem will be solved.

Vehicle still shutters& vibrates when applying brakes after 2 times into dealer for warranty repair work. The dealer says that there is no problem. They replaced all brake pads and drums the first time and turned the rear drums the second time.
