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 #3

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 90,000 miles


My son borrowed my 2004 Tundra to help a friend move. When he arrived, he walked to rear of truck and the spare tire fell to the ground. Upon checking I found that the winch mechanism that holds the spare tire was rotted. This is definitely a safety hazard. I have read horror stories about tires falling off while in traffic and serious injuries incurred. There should be a recall on this.

The T bracket that holds spare tire up under bed of truck broke due to excessive rust dropping spare tire out on road at 30 mph...very unsafe to say the least. Also, front torsion bar frame mount passenger side has broken off frame due to excessive rust. 2 inch by 5 inch hole in the frame bottom at this location.

While driving the spare tire fell off of the truck due to a badly rusted spare tire wench, as I looked under the truck to see if their was any other damage I noticed a lot of rust on the frame. Most notably around the suspension.
