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.

2005 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #1

Tundra 8-cyl

  • 50,000 miles


I have a Toyota Tundra 2005 that has had the throttle drivers updated. I have had at least 6 incidences of uncontrolled acceleration. These incidences occur at slow speed in muddy situations. Depressing the brakes to the floor does not stop the vehicle and I have had several near misses. This occurs in 2 wheel drive and I believe it has to do with the vsc and software. The only way to stop the throttle or unwanted momentum is to throw the vehicle into neutral. Even this does not immediately help. I recommend the ignition key as the quickest way to stop this. Additionally, our company has a newer Tundra that is getting fixed under the recall. This truck has experienced similar situations with other employees driving. Slow speeds in 2 wheel drive, in muddy situations the truck pushes you uncontrollably. I will investigate more once the truck is returned with the recall repairs. This all is related to the vsc system and the software. Please have an investigator call me. I believe that I can easily reproduce this situation in the vehicle. These vehicles are unsafe and Toyota needs to address these issues. I don't believe the current recall is addressing the issue!
