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.

ABS, trac and 4hi warning lights all on while driving. Vehicle ABS and trac control all ceased to function. Was driving in slippery road conditions. Almost lost control of vehicle. After stopping vehicle, 4hi would not engage. This is 4th or 5th time this has occurred over the past 2 years. Mostly occurs during cold weather but not always. Have taken truck to dealer after these occurrences and 2 of the times the dealer has been able to replicate the situation. When truck is in state of flashing lights, the truck always returns to normal when you turn off vehicle, wait and then restart it. Dealer has replaced parts now 4 times and still having the same problem

I took my 2007 Tundra for a modification of the pedal to Toyota. On the date below. I am concern about the way the pedal is working. Every time the truck bounces or hits a bump, my truck accelerates, because of the sensitivity of the pedal. It did not do that before. I am in the process of taking it back. As soon as I can take some time off of work again. I just thought you might want to know how the modification is working on my Tundra. Thank you for your time.

Vehicle hard to stop with A/C or headlights on. Engine idles normally 5-600 RPM, until parking lights or A/C is turned on. Then it idles at 800 RPM in gear. Sometimes it feels like you've been rear ended, after coming to a stop. If driving surface is slippery and put into gear with head lights on, the rear tires will begin to spin, without touching the accelerator. This is a daily occurence that has been taken to different Toyota dealers with no relief. All they can say is that the computer says everything is okay. Turning the parking lights on does not cause enough load on the engine to warrant the extra 200 or more RPM. The other day ( 01/26/2010 ) I was turning around in a muddy driveway and while idling I turned the steering wheel to the left. I let my foot off the brake and the truck went straight, even as I applied the brakes, leaving two big ruts through my friends yard. This was caused by the ground being slippery and the high idle speed. I am sure that this will cut down on the life of the brakes. 4.7 V8 engine

As I slow down I feel a clunk in the transmission. A few seconds after I come to a complete stop, it feels as if someone bumps me in the rear, only there's no car behind me. They replaced the drive shaft and seal, but now the bump is even more pronounced. Also in the mornings the transmission will not change into 6th gear until I drive app. 1 mile at 60 mph. I am nearing the expiration of my warranty and I am concerned about this issue.

Truck has a clunk and bump coming from the drive train.when you let the foot off the brake the drive shaft jerks. Issue is getting worse. Arbitration says that Toyota has fixed the problem. Still has the problem.

Esto ES una pick up Toyota Tundra del 2007.estacione el vehiculo Y empuje la palanca de la trasmision a parking Y pense que estava en parquing, luego puse el suitch en off pero la palanca nunca callo en parquing devido a que una pieza de pasta que sirve de tapafalta en la palanca de cambios de la trasmision SE rompio Y atoro la palanca Y SE quedo en reversa. Lo que provoco que el vehiculo SE presipitara por un barranco. Fue perdida total.por suerte no hubo muertos.
