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 Owner Comments

problem #4

Tundra 8-cyl

  • 49,000 miles


Going up ramp onto hwy 90 as I was trying to merge into traffic the air injection pump and air switching valves failed and truck power decreased to 30 miles per hour. This is the second time I almost had an accident due to this issue happening at an inappropriate time.Toyota will not cover repair as they said defective manufacture of system not covered after 150,000 miles. Defect is their issue and should be rectified by them at no charge to customer as this is a driving hazard they have already admitted to the first time at 49,000 miles.

Approximately two weeks ago I was pulling out of the ball park here in beckley West Virginia when I began to accelerate my 2008 Toyota Tundra. The vehicle began accelerating higher and higher on its own sending me and my daughter on a 70 mph ride. The only way I could stop was to put both feet on the brake and put vehicle into neutral, eventually the pedal became unstuck and I drove the vehicle to my place of work less than a mile away and parked it. I called Toyota and they towed the vehicle in. This incident occurred after the safety recall. Toyota at this time cut the gas pedal in two and added cheaper floor mats. They said this was the problem. Today I was taking my children to school and was going up a hill. I depressed the gas pedal and had no acceleration. I gently rolled back down the hill and got the vehicle on the level and then took another route. I feel this vehicle is not safe. Its not the floor mats or the size of the pedal it is in the wiring, computer, or something. Both incidents were fortunate that no vehicle was in front of me or behind me. I called Toyota today about this second incident and all they could tell me was to call the 1 800 number. I explained I didn't feel safe in this vehicle, knowing that im putting myself and others on the highway in harms way. This is my mode of transportation so unfortunately I cant just stop driving it.
