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 #1

May 082012

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 116,457 miles


Fortunately I was off the interstate when making a right hand turn into a convenience store...........the steering suddenly became almost impossible to turn, actually causing me to turn into the outgoing lane at the store entrance. There was no advanced warning....just no steering on turns and no brake fluid in the resevoir. The Toyota deal says the steering rack needs replacement.($1600)......and could not explain exactly where the fluid went. This was suppose to be a 300,000 mile vehicle, now stands at 116,457. Had to replace a stabilizer as well due to corrosion. I just sold my 1997 Grand Am with 224,000. And my 1988 Dodge Caravan had 244,000 before the transmition went. Toyota and reliability"??????"
