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 2007 Toyota Tundra. When he made a sudden stop while driving 60 mph on the highway, the rear tire locked and the vehicle spun around. Whenever the roads were wet or covered with ice he lost traction, the ABS light illuminated and the vehicle shut down. The failure usually occurred when he started the vehicle. The vehicle also accelerated when he shifted into four wheel drive. He took the vehicle to the dealer three times for the failures. The dealer stated that since the diagnosis did not locate a failure code there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. The dealer did not attempt to repair or replace any parts related to the failure. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 20,000. The current mileage was 34,000.

2007 Toyota Tundra DC 5.7L limited. I was driving on the freeway and I went to pass another vehicle when I got into the next lane and another car changed lanes in front of me and I was forced to slam the brakes. The ABS system engaged and slowed vehicle down, but the truck felt like it was being pushed forward... by this time I had enough room in front of me, so I let off the brakes and the truck jumped like I was holding my foot on the gas. I almost hit the car in front of me again. I slammed on the Y brakes again and the ABS system kicked in, and the truck was still trying to accelerate, but I held the brake hard enough that I didn't hit the car in front of me. At this point I had to do something. I stuck the truck in neutral and tried to get to the side of the freeway. When I got stopped I had 3 lights on., brake, vsc, and a picture of a car with 2 crooked lines on it. I believed it was traction control. By now the truck was normal again but the lights were on so I took the truck straight to the dealer.

Since day one that I have purchased the truck I have complained that the brakes don't slow the truck down as it should. That you have to pump it at least one time for them to act normal when slowing down. Some times it is over half way to the floor before you stop. And that is with out pulling a load. When I talked to the dealership (jay wolfe Toyota of K.C) was told that "it was magic brakes", I have had to go back to the days of old where you give it a pump then it works. I have almost rear ended several people. These brakes are dangerous. And I paid $50,000. For that. They did not consider this to be a problem that maybe I needed to get use to the truck.
