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

Aug 142004

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,796 miles


(1) on 7/30/03 at 5796 miles, only 10 months after purchasing a 2002 Toyota Tundra (9/27/2002), I experienced a violent vibration during light braking at speeds of 45-60 mph. 2) concerned for my and other motorists' safety, I took it in to the kirkland Toyota dealership. (3) kirkland Toyota completed the front brakes campaign and replaced the following under op code BR2005: Calipers, brake pads, wheel bearings, backing plate, turn rotors, and tubes. They also bled the brakes and torqued the wheels. (1) on 8/13/04, at 10494 miles, I noticed that the violent vibration had returned. (2) concerned for my and other motorists' safety, I took it in to the kirkland Toyota dealership again. (3) kirkland Toyota test drove the vehicle and found the tsb on rear brake vibration, op code 472151 combo code a. the service dept. Relaced both rear drums. (1) the following day, 8/14/04 I test drove the vehicle and discovered that the violent vibration during light braking had increased, now occurring on both grades and flat surfaces. (2) my next step is to contact the dealership again, but I am not encouraged that a solution will be found.
