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.

The contact owns a 2002 Toyota Tundra. While parking the vehicle, the parking brake did not engage. The contact observed that there was a fuel leak under the vehicle and the frame was severely rusted. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was confirmed that the frame was severely rusted and needed to be repaired. The vehicle was repaired under NHTSA campaign number: 09V444000 (structure); however, the failure recurred. Approximately two and a half years later, the contact observed that the frame fractured. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer or repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 218,572.

Had frame replaced per recall, 5/2012. Had been smelling gas after fill ups so had airport Toyota, vandalia, Ohio - repair while they had truck torn apart- told me the gas tank port was corroded so they put new gasket on. Now I am smelling gas on passenger side. I am taking truck back to Toyota. I am concerned about the corroded gas tank because I had it repaired once before. I believe this problem is just as important as the corroded tank straps that were replaced in 2010. It's not something that is seen easily.
