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.

2006 Toyota Tundra Owner Comments

problem #1

May 122006

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Thursday 5/11/06 idle upon start up goes to 2000 RPM, and stays there for approximately 1-1 1/2 minutes, before slowing dropping down to around 1500 RPM. It seemed to really be straining against the brake, when I put it into drive, again, not the feel it had when it was brand new. Friday 5/12/06 it not only had the high idle, but while driving at highway speeds seemed to have a random surge while driving. Couldn't detect a pattern to it, whether on incline, decline, or flat roadway. Upon arriving at work, I placed the transmission into park, and idle was approximately 750 RPM (by dash tach) when suddenly it raced up to 1500 RPM, stay there for about 30 - 45 seconds, then returned to 750 RPM. This surge situation certainly presents a possible safety problem, if the surge was to override the brake pressure and lurch forward at stop, or in bumper to bumper traffic.
