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.

2008 Toyota Tundra double cab 5.7 4X4. Vsc/4hi/4lo/ABS/brake lights all start flashing. Have brought to dealer 3 times. Have 88,500 miles on truck. Warrenty runs out at 100,000. Dealer states they can not reproduce problem. Showed them online articles of same vehicle with same issues and how it was resolved. They refuse becuase there is no code.

On my 2008 Tundra while pulling a travel trailer on occasion the check engine light comes on along with the vehicle stability control and traction control lights. The last occasion was while on a return trip a little over half way back home the lights came on after a brief stop. After about two days the lights go out. This is the 3rd or 4th time this has happened. I took the truck to the dealer to have it checked out and they said that because I had a after market oiled air filter on the truck it was contaminating the mass air flow sensor, and refused any further service because of the modification, and said that there were not any codes in the history of it happening before. After getting back home I pulled the mass air flow sensor out and there was not the first bit of oil residue at all on the sensor. I believe that since the truck is still under warranty they did not want to go it any further and to just blame it on the after market air filter which has proven to not cause the problem.

We were out of town when 3 lights on the dash appeared. Traction, engine and vsb. No dealership in town where we were. My husband disconnected the battery and it reset. Didn't see the lights for three weeks, just came back on after sitting up all night. Dealership said $600, thank goodness I got extended warranty. When you accelerated to 30mph it would not shift out right. And vehicle would not go over 60mph.

Faulty ABS actuator in 2008 Toyota Tundra causes multiple safety hazards in vehicle including catastrophic ABS brake failure, disabled speedometer, inoperable 4WD, etc.. wide-spread tbs problem with very expensive repair. Obvious manufacturer defect and safety hazard that Toyota is not willing to correct outside of warranty.

The contact owns a 2008 Toyota Tundra. While driving approximately 60 mph under normal road conditions a slippery conditions service light illuminated on the dashboard and the vehicle began to lunge forward. The vehicle was driven onto the emergency lane and after shutting off then back on it began to function normally. The failure was not diagnosed by the dealer. The failure did not recur. The failure and current mileages were 19,122.

The vehicle had been sitting in the driveway overnight. When I got in to go to work in the morning several warning lights were illuminated. The slip, brake, 4X4 hi and lo, vehicle stability control, and lsd lights stayed on until I stopped and turned the vehicle off and then back on. When I restarted the vehicle the lights were out. This has happened six times in the past 12 months. Two other times the brake light was on and stayed on until I turned off the vehicle and restarted. There has never been an acceleration issue. On two occasions, while driving on a dry road the traction control engaged and took the power out of the vehicle. On both occasion was driving in town at less than 30 mph. The local dealership has never been able to duplicate the fault.
