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.

We have had issues with the power door locks on our Toyota Tundra. The truck does not lock or unlock with the fob or with the door locks. It is an issue with all the doors. It is erratic as to which door respond to the fob and which don't. it changes everyday. Something is probably wrong with the actuator or computer. It is a nuisance, inconvenience and dangerous;in a case of an emergency, one wants to be able to open one's doors quickly. This was discovered a year ago and continues to be an issue.

  • 55,000 miles
My vehicle now has a little less than 70,000 miles on it, and has a feature which automatically locks the doors at 15 mph, then unlocks them when the transmission is put in park. However, the doors will no longer lock unless I do so manually with each door; the power mechanism has failed. The dealer claims that the central relay and controller of the power lock system is ok; but the power lock actuator (small motor) on each door has failed individually. I find it almost impossible to believe that each one of these parts has failed in the same vehicle relatively early in the life of the vehicle unless there is either a faulty design or extremely poor quality of the parts involved. In either case, the manufacturer should be responsible for the cost of the repair, which the dealer estimates at $1,746! please help me with this if you are able to put some pressure on Toyota. I would appreciate it.
