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

Feb 202005

Tundra 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles


The owner was driving at 50 mph while towing, and could not control the vehicle and crashed. The vehicle was bouncing from guard rail to guard rail. When the owners came to a stop the vehicle was still right side up. The vehicle was totaled. Both occupants sustained injuries. The passenger was hospitalized for a week with broken ribs and other internal injuries while the driver suffered from shock and a concussion. However, the driver sustained some injuries from the airbag. Both are in physical therapy and the other therapy treatments. The driver is still suffering from headaches. There were no problems before the wreck. No noticeable problems to the vehicle with handling. There was no wobbling or any indication that this was going to happen.
