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.

When applying the brakes on my O6 Tundra 4X4 18,000 miles my stering wheel will jerk to the left and return. It does it more when brakes are hot from stop and go traffic. I am concerned what will happen on ice. I have had it to the dealer 4 times and have left it for 2 days for them to resolve this problem.they have not fixed or resolved the problem.they also had the Toyota southeast rep look at it for 2 days and still did not fix the problem.

My husband and I purchased a 2006 Toyota Tundra access cab on 11/25/06 at Toyota of fort worth Texas. Less than 6 days later, we were driving home on a street that leads to our house, less than a mile, we have been traveling this road for at least 15 years. It was slightly raining, we approached the curve to the left on this road. Made the curve and all of a sudden the wheels broke loose, my husband tried to correct but the truck began to accelerate, then turned completely sideways and crashed into two trees that were less than 5 feet from the road. It also appears that the 4 wheel anti lock brake system wasn't working.

: the contact stated while traveling 5 mph; when the brake pedal was depressed, the pedal went to the floor and the ABS activated. The vehicle drove up over the top of a rock causing damage to the skid plate. There were no injuries sustained and a police report was not taken. The dealership was informed.
