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.

Frame/chassis is rusting at weld joints and mounts. Paint is bubbling and rust is visible below the cracked paint areas, which concerns me since I tow a 6,000 lbs rv trailer. I am also concerned that the vehicle might not pass the Virginia state vehicle inspection.

I currently own a 2001 Toyota Tundra pickup truck, bought in 2003, and have garaged it for 85% of its life, sprayed and cleaned the undercarriage on a regular basis. The truck currently has 90K on it. The frame does have rust throughout. Especially where the suspension supports are located from front to back and most if not all of the hardware that holds the bed to the frame and the whole truck to the frame is rusted and some of the threads of the fasteners are gone. Am concerned that it is a safety hazard for my family and anyone passing by the truck while it is in motion. Am wondering what the out come will be.

Vehicle was shaking, felt from rear of vehicle. Made loud popping sound from rearend of vehicle when articulating a turn on a hill, or road bump. It was found that the rearend U-bolts that attach the rearend to the leaf springs were extremely loose. The rear drive axle was literally falling out from under the vehicle. This vehicle has had no work done pertaining to the U bolts, they should not have came loose.
