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.

Air injection system failure causes a check engine light to appear and can cause the vehicle to go into "cripple" mode limiting throttle and speed to 40 mph which could be a serious safety concern in some driving conditions. Dealer stated they currently have two other Tundra there with the exact same problem they.are "replacing the air injection pumps and valves for a total cost of ~$4000 if the vehicle is not under warranty anymore this is all at the owners expense. This is a dangerous problem due to it prevents acceleration and you have a sudden loss of power quite dangerous when merging or in a flow of traffic..

Toyota Tundra 2007 w/ 4WD. Vehicle went from normal 2 wheel drive into 4 wheel drive low without warning, without touching any controls. Could not drive faster than 30 mph, engine check light came on. Turned into dealer, they said it was a component in the engine that failed. The warranty inspector came by today and the history data on the memory had been erased and could not duplicate. Vehicle is still in the shop. Dealer states it is defective but the warranty does not want to pay for the repair. The dealer stated air pump in the intake manifold failed. The consumer believe the problem may be the ECU.

Stuck gas pedal. The incident occurred over a year ago when I was driving on US101 highway near tillamook, Oregon with two of my brothers, one on the front passenger seat, and one on the back. When I slightly press on the gas pedal, the truck took off with RPM at about 6000 and speed of about 70mph, and I could not stop the truck via pressing really hard on the brake. Finally, I was able to stop it by pushing the shift handle to neutral. I turned off the engine and checked the gas pedal to make sure nothing would get jammed, and I did not find anything. When I tried to restart the engine, the RPM shot to 6000 again, and this time I tapped on the gas paddle couple times, and the engine dropped back down to idle. Fortunately, there was no one driving in front of me, and there was no accident involving this incident, but I believed this is a major safety issue that need to get more attention from the truck manufacturer. Btw, I've not let my wife drive this truck since the incident occurred.
