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 312002

Tundra 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


2002 Toyota Tundra 4X2 SR5 with under 18,000 miles, at 45 degree angle while in drive and no load, vehicle will roll backwards and will continue to roll until the brakes are applied. While rolling a loud constant clicking noise eminates from the rear end as if gears were slipping. Vehicle seldomly driven and almost never pulls any loads, never abused or wrecked and maintained regularly. This has occurred since the vehicle was purchased in may of 2002. Lakeside Toyota informed me today 9-20-04, this was normal for the truck and that they simulated it with another truck.
