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: You're going to burn through a lot of dinosaurs while chugging around town, and any rear passengers you may have to carry are going to feel real cramped, but at the end of the day this is a solid truck.

2004 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #2

My ABS brake system light comes on under conditions of cold (around freezing) and damp weather. Once the vehicle has warmed up the light goes off, but the ats doesn't work until that happens. Toyota refuses to address the issue. They claim no one has filed a complaint. The truck is under warranty and they will not replace any parts.

Vehicle is experiencing brake failure. While driving down hill in light snow the vehicle was picking up speed as the brakes were applied. Took the vehicle into the dealership, and was told that this was the normal function of the brakes, and everything was working correctly.
