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.

The contact owns a 2006 Toyota Tundra. While driving 20 mph, the vehicle began to sway. The contact applied the brakes, but the vehicle would not stop. She drove over the embankment and the vehicle rolled twenty feet downhill. The vehicle overturned. A police report was filed and the contact was injured. The failure was possibly due to improper finishing of the front suspension lower ball joint, according to NHTSA campaign id number 07V013000 (suspension:front:control arm:lower ball joint). The current and failure mileages were 2,500.

Recall for 2004 through early 2007 Toyota Tundra. Toyota said I have to order the parts and have to wait 4 to 6 weeks before I can have it fixed. Totota had had this recall for the Tundra for some years now and they should have the parts knowing.

Tundra 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,350 miles


Toyota failed to inform us about recall ssc 70B our 2006 Tundra. I read about the recall in a newspaper article. When I first called Toyota in February 2007 they promised to mail me a notice. It never arrived. We took the vehicle to a Bridgestone tire dealer because of excessive wear on outside edge of both front tires. The vehicle came new with Bridgestone tires. The Bridgestone tire dealer told us that both front tires should be immediately replaced because the outside edges were worn to the substrate. We were surprised because the vehicle has only 7,350 miles on it. The Bridgestone tire dealer suggested that we take the vehicle to a Toyota dealer and have them inspect the front-end alignment. The Toyota dealer agreed to do so and informed us that he would be able to complete the recall work associated with ssc 70B and that as part of that procedure, the front-end alignment would be checked before and after the recall work. After the work was completed the alignment report clearly showed that the front wheels had the incorrect "toe" adjustment on both front wheels. We have retained copies of that report. The service consultant suggested that we contact the service manager to ascertain whether or not the dealership would provide some sort of discount on the cost to replace both tires. Today we contacted Toyota directly as we believe one or both of the following contributed to the premature destruction of both front tires. 1. the vehicle left the Toyota factory with the front-end out of alignment. 2. excessive wear of both front tires was caused by the improper "toe" adjustment which may have been an artifact of the recall work that required replacing the front suspension lower ball joints. Had Toyota notified me in a timely manner, I would have had this recall work completed and possibly saved the front tires from premature destruction. So far, Toyota has refused to pay for the two new front tires.

Tundra 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 29,600 miles
2006 Toyota Tundra - ball joint failure causing ball joint to break and wheel to come off. This also damages the fender on which ever side the ball joint breaks. Toyota added more bolts and pieces to the ball joint but it didn't make the joint stronger and could happen quiet frequently until the problem is resolved by Toyota. It starts with the steering becoming hard to handle and then all of a sudden your wheel falls off. Thankfully we were in a parking lot when this happened and not going very fast.
