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

Airbag light goes on and off, took it to the Toyota dealer as the owner manual indicates. Diagnose code B1801 open spiral cable part# 155740. When the light is on the air system is disabled and will not deploy if in an accident. When researching if this is common or not, there are a lot of Tundra owners with the same problem. This spiral cable is either a defective part Toyota used or a design flaw therefore should be recalled and fixed. Toyota dealer wants over 750 dollars to replace the spiral cable. Since it goes on and off, Toyota owners will have to be lucky if they get into an accident and hope the light is off at the time so the airbags will work.

I let my boyfriend drive my 2008 Toyota Tundra to work. He was on his way home following the flow of traffic at 68mph and two cars ahead slammed on their breaks to avoid the traffic stop and the three cars collided. My Toyota Tundra sustained the most damage bashing the entire front-end of the vehicle. A women at the front of the collision was treated for back injuries. My boyfriend did not sustain any injuries thanks the grace of god because the airbags in the Toyota Tundra did not deploy.
