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 driver's seat (powered) suddenly, randomly and unexpectedly shifts positions by a very noticeable amount. The movement is accompanied by a loud clunk/thunk noise that is very unnerving to both driver and passenger. In fact, we are starting to wonder if the seat may just completely disconnect from the body while we are driving. If you were able to experience the sensation of unexpected movement and noise, I suspect the same thought would cross your mind as well. My research shows that this is a known problem on some Tundra models  and on many other Toyota models. See tundratalk.net, toyotanation.com, and tundraheadquarters.com. The problem only occurs after the truck has been driven 15 - 30 minutes. The longer the truck is driven, the more frequently the issue manifests. The slightest change in acceleration or shift in direction seems to cause this problem.

  • 77,000 miles
While completely stopped in interstate traffic, I was rear ended by another vehicle. The driver was traveling approximately 55-60 mph before he slammed on his brakes. Upon the collision, the driver's seat I was sitting in slid backwards on the adjustable seat track towards the rear of the vehicle and my seat fully reclined. After the collision, my seat was fully reclined and I was laying down in my seat. While I received no further injuries because of this incident, had a passenger been sitting behind me (particularly a child in a child restraint), they would have been more severely injured by my seat sliding backwards and reclining.
