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.

The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Tundra. The contact stated after receiving a recall in regards to NHTSA campaign id number 07V579000 (power train:driveline:driveshaft) and taking the vehicle in for inspection, he was advised that his vehicle was not experiencing the failure. Within a few months, he noticed that when he drove at various speeds, there was a very violent shaking in the drive shaft. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer and they advised him that they were not going to assist him. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 85,000. The VIN was unavailable.

Bought my Tundra in 07. In 09 of Jan. I took it to Toyota stating after braking it felt like being hit from behind. Toyota replaced the driveshaft. In Oct. Of 09 it started all over again. Took it back to Toyota they said they replaced it once & would not replace it again & that it would keep having this problem. I've emailed Toyota, called customer care they said its a characteristic of the Tundra. I only have 42000 miles on truck. If I would of known this I wouldn't have bought it. They told me that the lemon law was only 2 years & that wouldnt help. Where do I go from here.

I feel a clunk in the transmission or rear end 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. I complained about it at the dealer but they say they do not know how to fix it? now the bump is getting even more pronounced. Also in the mornings the transmission will not change into 5th or 6th gear until I drive app. 1 mile. I am nearing 25,000 miles and would like these issues fixed before the expiration of my warranty.
