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.

2001 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

Excessive vibration in brakes. My 2001 Toyota Tundra has excessive vibration in my brakes. I have had the front rotors changed twice, and the rear drums changed twice, I have changed the pads and shoes twice also. It wont go away. Toyota posted a recall for it but will only repair it if the vehicle is under warranty. The average cost for this repair is around $1700. I think that Toyota should step up to the plate and take care of this.
