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.

A very disturbing vibration coming from underneath the truck during acceleration between 30 to 40 then again from 60 to 70. The whole truck shakes !!! I have taken it to the dealer but of course everything is ok by them. No where to turn.

I own a 2006 dbl cab Tundra in wi. Back in 2013 I was driving one and and someone was honking at me from behind. So I pulled over. They told me my gas tank was about to fall off. Sure thing I went under it and the gas tank strap was rust and only 1 of them was holding it up. I didnt some research and notice there was a recall on the frame rust. So I took it in for a inspection. The dealer told my that it didnt qualify for a replacement but they they can do a undebody coat and they replaced the tank strap too. So 1 yrs flew by and now my passenger side rear lower strut bracket broke off. It was just hanging there. This truck is falling apart. A few monther later while driving down the road. I was going about 35 mph and ther boom! I heard something loud. I ther braking but no brakes! I almost good hit twice running a red light. Scraiest day of my life. I almost doe that day. I finally rolled to a stop. I check the back and sure enough the driver side top strut bracket broke off taking out the brake distributor in the rear and also cutiing through some eletrical wires. This truck is a lemon! Toyota need to buy this truck back!

Air pressure in one tire constantly deflates. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that due to the porosity chrome of the wheels, air leaks out from the wheel causing the tire to deflate.

Brake pedal went to floor. Brakes had worked fine when vehicle was parked. When I started the vehicle, there was no warning light on dash, no indication that brake booster assembly (Toyota part number 470500C03) had failed or was failing. Vehicle was towed to dealership and showed diagnostic codes C0200,215 and 1223. Dealer confirmed no warning lights to indicate this catastrophic brake failure. Under different traffic or driving conditions, this could have been a serious or fatal event. This vehicle has been serviced only by the Toyota dealership where it was purchased new, at every recommended interval, and never missed any scheduled maintenance. I contacted Toyota customer service today at 800-331-4331 (ref #[xxx])and was told they had no record of similar complaints. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
