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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

The contact owns a 2004 Toyota Tundra. The contact viewed a recall notice for the lower ball joints on the internet. The dealer advised the contact they were waiting on a recall notification from the corporate office. The contact was having problems maintaining control of the vehicle while driving. The current and failure mileage was 100,000. The dealer diagnosed the failure as the power steering pump and replaced it at cost to the contact. Two to three weeks ago the dealer diagnosed the lower ball joints, and advised the contact that they were operating normally. On 2/19/07, while driving 25 mph the driver lost control of the vehicle and crossed the center line, hitting a wooden post. There was damage to the fender, the hood and the tire. The driver was unable to open the door. There were no prior warning light indicators. There were no injuries, and the road conditions were dry. The vehicle was towed to a Toyota dealer. The mechanic advised the contact that they received notification of the lower ball joint recall and that the vehicle was a part of the recall. The contact has the invoice from the power steering replacement.
