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. Notes: A dependable pickup option that does have a slight history of frame corrosion. Even though mud looks cool on a truck, it's best if you run this through the car wash every now and again.

2003 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 012003

Tundra 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 30,000 miles


I have a 2003 Tundra and the brakes vibrate when applied. This is a safety issue especially in snow slush and rain. I refuse to pay $2,000 for a manufacturing defect. I also see it affects many other owners. Hopefully I don't get hurt!

Brakes grab when vehicle has come to a complete stop. When the brake pedal is released there seems to be movement from either the steering assembly or axle.
