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.

2005 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 092005

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 652 miles


I was heading up my close friends snow covered driveway in my 2005 Toyota Tundra double cab 4WD. I had the truck engaged in 4H mode because of the slight snow cover. As I was 2/3 the way up I heard a pop and loud bang and the truck came to a stop with the rear wheels spinning I let off of the gas then started to slide backwards into a tree and then into a ditch causing contact with the R/F door and R/F fender removing the mirror in the process. Upon removal of the truck form the ditch I found that the R/F (pass side)wheel was locked up. At this time we were moving the truck off of the road way and then the wheel began to move after going forward and back a few times. I took the truck to the local Toyota dealer where they said that the truck had a broken R/F cv joint. They have refused to fix any body damage but replaced the axle. After the axle was fixed the dealer said Toyota wanted me to pck up the truck and drive it until they had made a decision on the body work. I refused to pick up the truck due to it not having a mirror on one side and I do not feel the door is secured. The truck has 652 on it and this was only the 2nd time in 4WD for a total usage of about 2 miles. The dealer has refused to let me have the parts and said they would keep them aside. I provided the dealer with a written request to hold the damaged parts for 90 days as of 12/16/05.
