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.

2002 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 012012


  • Automatic transmission
  • 102,000 miles


I discovered a leak in the rear end the other day went right down to my mechanic and he said to contact Toyota. The whole rear banjo housing is rotted through and should be under Toyota. Maybe the previous owner had a recall and never did anything about it. I am the second owner and last week received a letter about the cross bar corrosion. That I am taking it in to have done next week.

Tundra LTD V8

  • Manual transmission
  • 94,000 miles

I went to Iron Mountain Toyota and they just brushed me off so I wrote to the Calif. office and never heard anything. I am ticked off, love my truck and I do want it fixed and they need to do something. I purchased new and I have never had a problem with my truck. I have never received any recalls on my truck. Wish they would get with it. Brigid Murphy, owner. I want this fixed the weak spot area in the rear of the truck bed and under the frame fixed and soon if they need to get rid of the rust they need to do so.

Update from Mar 25, 2010: I made a appointment in GB and they told me it is fine and my tire is fine underneath and can stay underneath, Ok so they never mentioned my weak spot under my liner. Guess that is not a problem? I asked if they fix it they said no we just look at problems. Guess they feel that is not a problem??Yes I am complainning. Just what does it is fine and it passed mean?? Wish it was there truck then.. I had purchased it to haul a 5th wheel camper now I sure am glad I did not use it for that. I bet it would have pulled out of the bed at that rate... I am not a happy camper person now..
